Foodbank collection postponed but donations welcomed

For obvious reasons this year's CAST / CAFC foodbank collection has been postponed.

In normal circumstances we would have had a van in the car park before the games against Wimbledon and Bristol Rovers offering Charlton supporters the chance to make a donation of non perishable foodstuffs or toiletries to Greenwich Foodbank in advance of Christmas. We hope that some time next year we will all be able to return to The Valley and we imagine that, unfortunately, the demands on the foodbank will be as high as ever.

In the meantime the Foodbank would be very grateful for any financial donation you can make

Their website says:

"We anticipate that the next few weeks are going to be really busy at our food bank.  This Christmas, your gift can make a real difference to local families and individuals who’ve been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Greenwich Foodbank is incredibly grateful to local people, schools, churches and businesses who are contacting us to find out the best ways to donate to help local people in hardship this winter and Christmas.

The generosity of so many people donating extra food has filled our warehouse to overflowing and we are struggling to work safely. We want to suggest other ways to support us that will help with the immediate space problems and ensure we can continue to support the community into the New Year. It would really help if you could give in either of these two main ways this Christmas please:

Donate money for food online via Bankuet

Your gift via Bankuet, specified for Greenwich Foodbank, will enable us to order exactly the food we need for people, when we need it - and Bankuet will deliver it direct to us. You can also add Gift Aid when you give, if you are able to:


Donate Money Directly via our Just Giving Page

Any cash gift you give will be used where the need is greatest as we support local people this winter and beyond. You can give a single or regular gift, and add Gift Aid if you can.

Your gift will make a real difference this Christmas and beyond."
