Latics Youngsters Drop Off Donations To Oldham Foodbank

12 October 2018

Players from Oldham Athletic's academy joined Oldham Athletic Community Trust to drop off donations to Oldham Foodbank this afternoon.

An urgent appeal was issued last month by the local charity who were experiencing one of their worst shortages of stock and funds in two years.

Players, staff and fans of Oldham Athletic came together in their numbers to help the foodbank and the people of the town.

Ewan McFarlane, Javid Swarby-Neavin and Harry Norris delivered the donations and also spent time talking to volunteers, learning about the work they do in the community. 

Chris Millington, Head of Coach Development was also with the players helping to drop off donations.

“It was good to see first hand the wonderful work the volunteers do at Oldham Foodbank.” He said.

“It was a big eye opener for the lads and it was important for them to learn about the needs of people in our community.”

The club are still accepting donations and encourage supporters to help the local community.

For those wishing to donate food, they can drop it off at Boundary Park (main entrance on Furtherwood Road) where they club will collect supplies on behalf of the Foodbank.
