Guiseley AFC Community Foundation are once again organising a Food Bank Collection on behalf of Otley Food Bank and Aireborough Children’s Centre in time for the food to be distributed over the Christmas Period.
Otley Food Bank (part of Churches Together) provide support for people in crisis, not only in Otley but across the Aireborough District.
As well as Otley Food Bank the Foundation will be supporting Aireborough Children’s Centre who have identified families in need of support.
Over the previous four years Guiseley AFC’s players, staff, volunteers, supporters and the wider Aireborough Community have been extremely generous.
The football club has received donations of several hundred pounds worth of food, toiletries, pet food and Christmas related treats, exceeding expectations each year.
We are again asking everyone to come together as a community to support this local good cause at the Hereford match on Saturday 8th December.
Drop off points will be just inside the turnstiles and in the Otley Road car park by the cricket club entrance from noon until 3pm.
Along with all the staple foods seasonal items are also required such as tinned meat and pies, tinned vegetables, instant mash and tinned potatoes, Christmas pudding, custard, jelly and other dessert items, stuffing and gravy granules, savoury and sweet biscuits, small selection boxes, tea, coffee, hot chocolate sugar and UHT milk, tinned fruit, soup, jam, fruit juice and cordial, dried fruit and nuts, pasta, rice, beans and pulses, cooking sauces, toiletries, toilet rolls, cat and dog food.
