Fans donate over 400kg to Greenwich Foodbank

Charlton supporters have generously donated 436 kilograms worth of food to the club’s annual pre-Christmas Greenwich Foodbank.

The club asked fans attending our recent #FillTheValley fixtures against Ipswich Town and Cambridge United to do what they could to help alleviate food shortages for families in the local community over the festive period.

The matchday foodbank donation drive, supported by Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust (CAST), received a heartwarming response, with cash donations being collected as well as food. 

Jamie Ginns, Greenwich Foodbank CEO and Addicks supporter, said: “Thank you to all at Charlton and CAST for your generosity. Your donation of 436 kilograms of food would have cost us £736 to buy ourselves and is equivalent to 11 of our ‘large family packs’ which feed families with more than two children for three days each. The food is already checked and stored here at our depot and will be in the hands of those most in need as quickly as possible.  

“So far this financial year Greenwich Foodbank has helped 6,539 people,” he added. “Thank you again from all at Greenwich Foodbank for helping to meet the needs of those in food crisis.”
