Thank you for record-breaking foodbank donations

Everyone at Guernsey Football Club would like to extend their thanks to everyone who donated food at Footes Lane on 6th December.

Fans were invited to bring non-perishable items to donate when they came down to purchase tickets for the 'Originals v Newcomers' match on 27th December, and the response was amazing.

There were enough donations to put together more than 100 hampers for families in need at Christmas, way more than any other year. They will be distributed by Health & Social Care.

Guernsey FC Director John Loveless, who organises the GFC food bank every year said: "This year has probably been more difficult than any other for our island community, especially those who may find life tough at the best of times when it comes to looking after their families. We are so grateful to everyone who brough an item with them. Your generosity will make a huge difference this Christmas."
