HUST and HUFC link up to make foodbank collection

The Supporters’ Trust (HUST) has again linked up with Hartlepool United and the club’s Community Sports Foundation (HUCSF) to organise a collection for Hartlepool Foodbank ahead of the home match with Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday 1st December.

Supporters wishing to back the initiative can donate non-perishable food items such as powdered or UHT milk, sugar, soup, pasta and sauces, rice, beans, tinned meat or vegetables, tea and coffee, biscuits and snacks.  The foodbank also welcome donations of toiletries such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo and soap.

Collection points for donations will be based in the Corner Flag and the club’s main reception on Clarence Road, and HUST volunteers will be on hand to help with collections from 12:30 until kick‑off. All donations received will be distributed in Hartlepool by the Trussell Trust associated Foodbank from their Church Street base.  You can learn more about the important role Foodbanks play in local communities here: www.trusselltrust.org/foodbank-projects
This collection is the third that HUST and HUFC have held, with two previous collections having been made in 2017, and we thank all those who donate in advance for their generosity to support struggling families in our area.
