We’re asking supporters to bring along items for the Basics Food Bank (Lanarkshire) at our game with St Mirren on Saturday, 5 October.
Basics Food Bank have been operating in North Lanarkshire since November 2010, with four food banks open two days a week for two hours at time.
We are asking all fans to bring what they can to support this important cause, so that those in need can receive a food parcel to help.
Items needed are:
- UHT Long Life Milk Semi Skimmed & Whole
- Tinned Meat
- Tinned Meals (Mince, Curry etc)
- Tinned Potatoes
- Tinned Vegetables
- Tinned Fish
- Tinned Custard / Rice Pudding
- Tinned Fruit
- Jars of Pasta Sauce
- Savoury Rice
- Tinned Hotdogs
- Tinned Meatballs
- Jars of Coffee
Drop-off points will be marked at the stadium and will be open before the match. Precise times will be advised shortly.
“It’s important that as a club, and as a support, we do our bit to try and help those locally who really, really need it,” chief executive Alan Burrows said.
“Anything we can collectively contribute will go far. Basics Food Bank do an amazing job helping people on a weekly basis, and if we can help them with their efforts, it can make a difference to people.”
Basics Food Bank are based at Motherwell Crosshill Parish Church, Wishaw Baptist Church and Airdrie Pilgrim Community Church.
If you aren’t able to make the game or want to donate sooner, there are also permanent collection points at Morrisons in Wishaw and Airdrie, and at Tesco in Wishaw.
