The Darlington FC Supporters Group will be holding their annual collection for the King’s Church Foodbank at this weekend’s match at Blackwell Meadows.

Quakers fans have always given generously in the past and no doubt, this year will be the same.

Collection bins will be situated near the programme hut ahead of the match with AFC Telford United.

The King’s Church is always grateful for any non-perishable food donations they receive. However, they would particularly welcome: UHT milk, tinned meat/fish, stuffing & gravy, instant mash, tinned potatoes, nuts, rice puddings, cereal, pasta, curry sauce, hot chocolate, coffee, male teenage gifts such as toiletries,

The Foodbank is a place where anyone who finds themselves in times of hardship can come and receive an emergency bag of food.

The King’s Church Foodbank, situated on Whessoe Road, is part of a network of foodbanks across the town. Other centres include Grange Road Baptist Church, St. Mary’s Community Centre in Cockerton, St. Andrew’s Church in Haughton-le-Skerne and St. Columba Church on Clifton Road.

If you are unable to attend the match, or forget to take your contribution to the collection, there are designated donation boxes around town, including Sainsburys and Co-op stores, or you can take a donation directly to collection points listed above.
