Supporters will be able to make donations from 1pm on Strawberry Place opposite NINE Bar.
The NUFC Supporters Food-bank is working in cooperation with the Newcastle West Food-bank, the largest Food-bank in the UK as well as Newcastle United FC, the Newcastle United Supporters Trust, NUFC Fans United and is supported by NUFC.COM and true faith.
Over 1000 people including children and people with disabilities and health problems receive a food parcel from Newcastle West Food-bank each WEEK. Other Food-banks in the North East will separately issue more food parcels and volunteers report that the demand for food and other support is increasing all of the time. The demand has never been greater. Donations will be organised to other Food-banks in accordance with need and item availability.
true faith invited Mike Nixon Project Manager of the Newcastle West Food-bank to specify which items would be especially welcome as donations to the first NUFC SUPPORTERS FOOD-BANK collection this Saturday.
These are the items that would be especially useful to those in need in the city and across the region:
Tinned meat products
