Big Hearts Food Bank Collection

28th November 2018

Big Hearts' foodbank collection in aid of Community One Stop Shop, the local foodbank, will take place on Sunday, December 2nd as Hearts welcome Rangers to Tynecastle Park.

Hundreds of local people will struggle to feed their family during the festive season. The Broomhouse foodbank is expecting a very high demand in food supplies to get through the 18 days of school holidays and the first weeks of the New Year.

All Hearts fans are encouraged to help these local families in crisis by donating food supplies before the game Hearts vs Rangers. The main drop-off point will be at the Foundation Plaza (McLeod Street) where Big Hearts Volunteers will be on hand from 10:30am until kick-off at 12pm.

Urgently needed: tinned meals, tins of vegetables, tins of meat or fish, UHT or powdered milk, rice, cereals, soups and other long shelf life products.

Thanks to Jambos Kickback, Hearts supporters also have the opportunity to donate money online until the 5th December – click here to visit the page. The money raised will help to buy additional supplies such as fresh fruits, bread and toiletries. The Jambos Kickback’s Board has kindly offered to cover all online service fees which means 100% of every pound donated will go directly to Community One Stop Shop.

Last year the generosity of Hearts fans contributed to 800kgs of supplies collected and £2,000 raised – helping support 167 vulnerable families for a whole month. Together we hope to surpass this fantastic achievement and make a positive difference to even more families in crisis at Christmas time.

A huge thank you in advance for your support.
