Foodbanks and football

Recommended Posts

Was shocked to hear that the Ayrshire foodbank had ran out of food recently. The foodbank as most are aware literally stops families starving when hit with sanctions or are still without despite working. 

Not sure the logistics but think it's been done before at various levels. It would be good to organise a junior wide foodbank donation day for like the first game of the season, scottish cup, whatever.  Obviously need to speak to our clubs, officials etc but what's peoples thoughts? Can we use P&B to make some positive change? Lol but honestly think its achievable if folk are up for it

Rutherglen Glencairn did exactly that last Christmas.

I would imagine we will do it again this year.

I’m sure Meadow had a collection for the food banks at one of there games last season and I think the oldfirm legends game in a couple of weeks they’re having another one

That's a good shout KP.
Sectional League Cup group games where all clubs are local might be the way to target local foodbanks.

Great idea. Twitter too.. Official twitters tend to be run by club officials or at least people who are in direct contact with club officials. 

Remember a few years back when he had the flying pig (local lad) signed for one game temp keeper away to st Roch's, st Roch's had a massive foodbank collection

Arthurlie also do a food bank collection.  Great idea and one that every club should consider. Well done on bringing this topic up.
