Supermarine Youth FC help out Swindon Foodbank

Share this

Swindon Supermarine Youth Football Club recently donated food supplies to Swindon Foodbank, a charity who help to feed local people in crisis.

A fundraising race night took place earlier this year with members bringing donations for Swindon Foodbank.

The night also helped to raise £1,500 to help purchase much needed equipment for the club which has grown from two initial mini teams to 12 youth teams in just over four years.

Supermarine’s Jo Bains said: “We held a fundraising race night for club funds but also to raise awareness and donations to the Foodbank.

“At Swindon Supermarine Youth FC we believe that it’s important for the players to understand and learn to support others in the community as the players and club are fortunate to have the support of the community and many great businesses. At each event we hold to raise club funds, we also look to support a local charity.

“The club holds the ethos of developing players not only on the pitch and in football but also to enable them to develop into individuals who are a positive contribution to society and through their football give to their local community. Last Christmas we raised funds and gave presents to the Children’s Unit and in October we assisted Phil McDonough in a charity match which donated all funds, £2,600, to Charlie Allen, a lad with leukemia and the Children’s Unit GWH.”

Supermarine are always looking for new coaches and players to join the club and if anyone is interested please contact Jo 01793 485838 or joannarees@aol.com.
