Stevenage FC Foundation and Stevenage Football Club have teamed up with local food bank, the Foodshed, to support their Christmas campaign to collect over 230 toys for 0–18-year-olds in our local community that may go without this Christmas.
Donations are being requested for new and unopened toys for children of all ages that will be collated by the Foundation and donated to the Toyshed on Monday 12th December, so they can reach local families in need ahead of the festive period.
Supporters wishing to make donations can do so the following ways:
- Bring your donations to The Lamex Stadium during the week and drop at the Foundation office, located in the South Stand
- Bring your donations to the Stevenage FC Academy next to Shephalbury Park, and the Academy staff will be collecting from parents of children in our pathway too
- Bring your donations to one of two Stevenage FC home games at The Lamex Stadium before Christmas and drop them at the KidZone located in West Stand Car Park
- vs Barrow AFC on Friday 2nd December, 7:45pm KO
- vs Mansfield Town on Saturday 10th December, 3pm KO
- Make a donation online by purchasing a toy through the Toyshed Amazon Wishlist – CLICK HERE
Foundation Chief Executive, Joe Goude said:
“During the initial stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, we did what we could to support those in our community, and part of that was collecting food to donate to the Foodshed. This year our community needs us to play our part once again as the Cost-of-Living crisis becomes a reality for more and more within our town.”
The opportunity to support those families in need is something we’re proud to be doing and thank any of our supporters who can help us to help the Toyshed reach its target of 230 toys. In addition to this, the Supporters Association will make their annual donation to the Bluebell Children’s Ward at Lister Hospital later this month, and we thank everyone associated with the Club and our community for any support they can give over the coming months”.
