Due to the Emirates FA Cup first round replay against Fleetwood Town, the planned meeting between members of the Trust Board and club directors has been postponed a week until Monday 21st November. As previously announced Liam Watson has agreed to attend our next members' meeting to answer questions. We will announce the date of this next week.
Last season, Trust in Yellow held a food collection to help the Southport Soup Kitchen on London Street.
The Trust and the Soup Kitchen were delighted with the response from supporters who gave very generously to help the local homeless population.
After the success of the last collection, the Trust will be holding another food collection throughout November to help the Soup Kitchen as they approach Christmas and their busiest time of year.
The Soup Kitchen is a very worthy cause which provides food and warmth to the local homeless population as well as distributing meals and hampers to vulnerable people within the Southport community. Donations can be made at any home match in November at the Trust in Yellow office.
The matches currently scheduled for November are on Monday 7 (Fletwood), Saturday 12 (Maidstone), Saturday 26 (Braintree) and Tuesday 29 (Solihull Moors).
How can I help?....
The Soup Kitchen is again looking for two types of donation.
1) Weekly at the Soup Kitchen they need tea, coffee, biscuits, cakes, sugar, and condiments such as ketchup or brown sauce.
2) For the families they support they need basics to create meals, such as pasta, sauces, tins of vegetables, soup, tins of meat or pies, butter/spread, cake or biscuits.
Any items however, large or small will be very welcome. So get looking in those cupboards. Donations will be accepted in the Trust office at all matches between now and the end of November.
