Food, drinks and other products donated by fans, players and staff of Cardiff City Football Club were delivered to Rhondda Foodbank in Tylorstown today.
More than 1,000 donated items were loaded onto a van at the Cardiff City Stadium and taken to the foodbank by Will Birch and Steve Woodman of the ground staff at Cardiff City, along with Trust vice chair David Craig and board member, Phillip Nifield. In addition, David Craig presented a cheque for £150 in donations by individual fans.
The Trust organised the collection before the Sheffield United game with excellent support from Cardiff City staff and players.
Theresa Thomas and Gaynor Jones of the Rhondda Foodbank thanked all those that were able to donate to help those suffering from food poverty. In 2020-21 the foodbank provided food to 3,564 clients, including 1,167 children, in the Rhondda Valleys.
David Craig said: “With Christmas just a few weeks away, we wanted to give a helping hand to those that have to use foodbanks. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of Cardiff City fans.”
