Stalybridge Celtic Community Development are pleased to announce a new partnership with Tameside Citizens Advice Bureau to set up a Foodbank at Bower Fold.

The Foodbank collections will take place on selected match days over the next few months at our National League North Home fixtures versus –

Saturday 20th February – v AFC Fylde

Saturday 26th March – v Gainsborough Trinity FC

Saturday 30th April v Boston United FC

Supporters of both clubs are encouraged to donate food items when they attend one of the fixtures, which will then be given to Tameside CAB for distribution through their Foodbank system.

Nigel Morgan, District Manager for Tameside CAB ‘The kindness of amazing donations continues to humble everyone at Tameside CAB and allows us to continue our vital help for those local people most in need. As you may be aware, the result of such generosity ensures that our staff and volunteers are able to focus on distributing essential food where it is really needed the most. We are looking forward to working with Stalybridge Celtic Community Development to help make a difference’.

Stalybridge Celtic, Community Development Officer, Mike Smith ‘We look forward to being able to help and contribute to the fantastic work Tameside CAB do throughout Tameside and provide more Food supplies to their Foodbank to help people in need’.

Food items recommended are Cornflakes, Tea Bags, Long Life Milk, Pasta, Baked Beans, Soup and general tinned foods. Once each match is over all the food supplies will be taken to Tameside CAB.

Please note – we are a collection point for the Tameside CAB Foodbank and NOT a fully fledged Foodbank that can donate food.
