Foodbank collections at The Valley in August

CAST will be teaming up with the club again to hold a collection in aid of Greenwich Foodbank before the games against Plymouth (August 16th) and Cambridge (August 20th). The Foodbank van will be in the main car park ready for donations from an hour before kick off.

We have traditionally held our collection in the run up to Christmas and we hope to do so again this year. However the urgency of the current situation means that we are asking Charlton fans to show their legendary generosity a bit earlier this time. Everyone will be aware of the acute financial pressures already being experienced by many in our community. The long school holidays and the October increase in energy prices will soon bring things to a crisis point. Some people will have to choose between eating and heating. Our local foodbank will be doing all it can to alleviate the hardship but all over the country foodbank supplies are running low.

Next week we will publish a list of the items that Greenwich Foodbank most urgently need at the moment.
