Hebburn Helps Gets a Large shop donation from Club

The football club looks to supoport the local community as part of it's "Giving Back Strategy" and this year after seeing a plea on social media from the local community foodbank "Hebburn Helps" the executive committee agreed to support them by donating a large food shop to help with the foodbanks emergency parcel donations to those families in Hebburn that are in need.

Club chairman Stephen Rutherford connected in with the local Aldi Store chain in South Shields with the support of club parent Claire Hanley who works at the store to purchase a list of essential food the help centre were running critically low on along with the store itself donating a large amount of stock that couldn't be sold due to damaged packaging etc.

The result was superb, overall we managed to secure and purchase a HUGE amount that was delivered to the community support centre with lots of excitement and smiles.

Jo & Angie the two key driving forces behind Hebburn Helps were overjoyed with the donation and were grateful of the clubs thoughfulness and support.

Club Chairman Stephen commented "Our club has 500 child members from the town of Hebburn and it's surrounding areas who all come from a range of backgrounds/families. The club is very much a community club and we love what Jo & Angie and the volunteers at the help centre do so it just seemed like the right thing to do for us to support where we could. We hope our donation goes a long way to helping those within the community in need, after speaking with Jo we will continue to support ongoing as part of our wider "Giving back Strategy".
