Once again we plan to call on the good will of all Blackpool fans to donate provisions to our Christmas foodbank initiative in support of those members of the community who are less fortunate than some. As with last year’s appeal, we will be collecting donations in aid of Home-Start and HIS Provision, charities which reach out oﬀering support, friendship and practical help to parents with young children and the more vulnerable members in the local community.
Christmas time is clearly one of marked contrasts between the haves and have-nots and whatever you can donate to help bridge that divide will be deeply appreciated. The charities are appealing for non-perishable food items: tea, coffee, soup, pasta, beans, tinned meat and vegetables; treats: chocolate, selection boxes etc; toys, nice toiletries for parents and teenagers; items for stocking fillers such as socks, gloves, hats, felt tips, crayons, notebooks or makeup; and clothes in good condition.
BST will be manning collection points outside Bloomfield Road West Stand between 2pm and 3pm on Saturday 24th November (for Home-Start) and Saturday 8th December (for HIS Provision).
