Food collection for Soup Kitchen

Trust in Yellow will be holding a food collection at the last two home mtches of the season to help the Southport Soup Kitchen.

The Trust has held previous collections at the end of last season and ahead of the festive period, and has been delighted with the response from supporters.

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 either of the last two home matches at the Trust in Yellow office against Forest Green Rovers on Bank Holiday Monday, April 17, and Lincoln City on Saturday April 29.

 

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 either of the final two home games.

Exhibition at the Atkinson

Trust in Yellow is delighted to announce that there will be an exhibition about Southport FC at The Atkinson from the end of this month.

The exhibition will feature the entire history of the club but will have a particular focus on the 1966/67 promotion season under Billy Bingham, which this season marks it's Golden Anniversary. It is hoped that this will form the basis of a permanent Southport FC display in the town's museum.

This will be followed in May by an evening event at the Atkinson which will celebrate the promotion season. A number of players have already confirmed their attendance and we will confirm the date and further details in the near future.

We have received a number of offers of donations of memorabilia but would welcome any further offers - whether permanent or for the duration of the exhibition - of any memorabilia from throughout the history of the club.

If you have any items which you would wish to donate, please contact Noel Warham on 07939726286 or nolio@btinternet.com, or via the Trust's Facebook or Twitter pages.
