Wimbledon Foodbank Collection

Wimbledon Foodbank

The Foundation is again supporting Wimbledon Foodbank this year by organising a food collection at the forthcoming home games on Sat 20th January v Blackpool and Sat 10th Feb v Northampton Town.   The foodbank is based in the High Path area of Wimbledon and works to support local families in need.

“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”

Foodbank 2.png

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

https://wimbledon.foodbank.org.uk/

The Foundation would encourage supporters to have a post Xmas clear out of food cupboards at home and bring any spare items to these fixtures and deposit them at the Foundation inflatable in the collection boxes provided.  The Foodbank requested that we provide this support at this time of year, rather than a Christmas collection, as their stocks are lower at this point.

 

The foodbank is particularly looking for the following items:

At this time of year we need all the basic Food items such as:

·         Cereal

·         Soup

·         Sugar

·         Rice

·         Pasta sauce

·         Beans

·         Tinned meat

·         Tinned vegetables

·         Tea/coffee

·         Tinned fruit

·         Biscuits

·         Squash

AFC Wimbledon Minithon October 1st

minithon.jpg

Get on your marks to join first-team management, academy players, and club staff for the AFC Wimbledon Minithon.

It's all for a great club cause with funds raised donated to the Academy, AFC Wimbledon Ladies & Girls, and the Foundation.

Last year the event raised over £22,000 and we're hoping to better that with your help!

The annual AFC Wimbledon Minithon will again be staged at the club's training ground in New Malden.

Those taking part can run, jog or walk the five-kilometre course. The training ground will be open from 9.00 am on the day of the event, with the first run starting at around 10.00 am. The Minithon is being held a little earlier this year than last, so hopefully the weather conditions will be a little more pleasant for those taking part!

Click on Minithon to enter the event now. You can also make a donation via a my donate Minithon page.

With the academy well represented at this event, our youth section is looking for helpers to run refreshment stalls, inflatables, face painting and a 'beat the goalie' competition. Please e-mail sarah.skinner@afcwimbledon.ltd.uk  if you can help.

Donations of cakes / biscuits and or refreshments will also be gratefully received.
