AFC Telford United are appealing for supporters to help spread some festive cheer by donating to the hospital toy appeal ahead of this Christmas period.
As Christmas approaches, it is important to remember that many children will spend Christmas in hospital this year and with this in mind, we are looking for donations of toys that our first team players can help deliver to those children who will be in a less fortunate position this Christmas.
Any donations of new or nearly new toys, would be gratefully received in the club office ahead of the Farsley Celtic fixture on Saturday or the FA Trophy game on the 14th December. The players & management staff will be visiting the Princess Hospital on Thursday 19th December ahead of the Junior Bucks Christmas Party.
The Bucks are also collecting food to support those less fortunate within our community.
The food should not be chilled or frozen and have plenty of shelf life still left on it.
Seasonal products such as minced pies, biscuits and Christmas cakes/puddings would be particularly welcome as well as items such as tinned goods. We will then pass on to local charities so that those in need can benefit from your generous donations.
Your items can be left at the club offices from today and will end on Friday 20th December
