Tytherington Juniors launches Christmas food appeal

Tytherington Juniors has teamed up with Silklife Foodbank to help ensure those in need don’t go hungry this Christmas.

The football club will be holding collecting donations at All Hallows College, Brooklands Avenue, on Tuesday, December 14 and donations of non-perishable food will be passed to Silklife to be distributed over the festive period.

The idea came to Ian Kennedy, whose children play for the under eights and under 10s, and other parents were happy to get on board.

Matt O’Brien, from the club, said: “We are so proud to partner with the Silklife Foodbank this Christmas.

“We think it is a fantastic charity and one that we felt compelled to try and support.

“Every little helps and collectively we can make a huge difference.”

Sought after donations include UHT or powdered milk, cereal, tea and instant coffee, rice, pasta, biscuits and tinned meat, fish or other foods.

In addition toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner and toothbrush as well as small unwrapped gifts (no alcohol) are requested. Cash donations will also be accepted.

Silklife Foodbank was established in December 2010 and provides emergency food boxes that last four to five days.

The club will be taking donations at All Hallows from 5pm to 8pm.
