Club appeal for charity donations

Ashington Football Club are hoping for a generous response from the public on Saturday to a joint off-the-field project ahead of their clash against Whitley Bay at Woodhorn Lane.

The club are asking for donations of food, clothing, toiletries and general items as they support two groups – Making Winter Warmer For Those Without and the Wansbeck Valley Food Bank.

Head organiser Mark Fitton said: “The people of Ashington always give generously to charities and we often find those who have next to nothing give most to those with nothing. There are a lot of people who are struggling at this present time and any donations will be greatly appreciated.”

Supporters can drops off donations when they come through the turnstiles before the match (kick-off 3pm) or take them to the clubhouse between 5pm and 7pm on Sunday.
