Warminster Town Fans donate to the Foodbank

We were delighted with the response fans made and donated food items using the drop-off point in our clubhouse. Below is a thank you email from the Warminster and District Foodbank.

Good morning Mr Parry,  

It was good to meet you yesterday morning.   We were delighted to receive your generous gift of a total of 31.1 kgs of food.  

Every item is very useful to us, it was all marked up and now awaiting dispatch to local people in crisis.
The Foodbank has kept going throughout the pandemic, feeding about 250 folks per month.  This figure went up to 450. during the height of summer.

We have 37 volunteers all doing an amazing job in their free time, but none of this would be possible without the generosity of the Warminster and District community.

Many thanks again, wishing you all success in the next season.

The players of Warminster Town Football Club, the Ladies Team and Reserves are adding up the miles they run to raise funds for the Warminster & District Food Bank, starting Feb 1st.

The miles run over 28 days is set to be the equivalent of running from Warminster Town’s Weymouth Street ground to the Camp Nou Barcelona, a distance of 1000 miles.

Warminster player, Owen Bartley (pictured above) wanted to help a local charity deal with the effects of poverty, especially being made worse by the Covid19 pandemic. Owen and the teams have set a target of £500, but hope the supporters and the good people of Warminster will help to smash this by their generosity.

Regular updates will be issued throughout February on the progress being made, via the club website and social media accounts.
