The Trust is thrilled to announce that more than 1,000 items were donated at the foodbank collection organised by Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust before the Rotherham United game on Saturday.

And a fantastic total of £504.50 was also donated by generous fans on the day, which includes a £100 contribution from the Trust.

David Craig, vice-chair of the Trust, said: “We were overwhelmed with the generosity of fans and everyone at Cardiff City Football Club. It was also great to receive donations on the day from Rubin Colwill and Oli Denham on behalf of the players. Club mascot Bartley also turned up to support the collection.

“The cost of living crisis with rising food and energy bills has hit many families and individuals very hard. So we are pleased to have helped support the tremendous work of the Rhymney Valley Foodbank in feeding the neediest in society.”

The Trust has now held three foodbank collections and we’ve been overwhelmed with the response from fans and the club alike.
