AFC Telford United have teamed up with Arleston and College and the Telford and Wrekin Interfaith Council to organise Food Parcel Provision next week during half term for those families across College Arleston & Wellington.
The club will contribute to the cost of 260 parcels over half term providing 2 weeks’ worth of food for over 130 local families. The parcels will be distributed from Arleston Community Centre with some parcels being hand delivered by club staff and local faith community volunteers.
Chairman Andy Pryce “We understand people are struggling and as a football club we would like to support our local community to help ease the worry of feeding your family during the half term holiday”
Cllr Rajash Mehta (Chairman Telford & Wrekin Interfaith Council) “ We would like to thank AFC Telford United for their support and reaching out to Telford and Wrekin Interfaith Council. We look forward to continuing to building relationships between the club and the community on many new projects moving forward”
Quote from Cllr Angela McClements: “These are very difficult times for vulnerable families and I would like to thank AFC Telford United for their amazing contribution towards the food parcel provision across Arleston and College and giving their support to the Interfaith Council over the half term period
This is a great example partnership working.”
