Macclesfield RUFC Reverse Advent Food Bank Appeal

This Christmas we thought it would be a fantastic idea for the M&J section and the Club to give a little back to the community in the form of a REVERSE ADVENT CALENDAR.  Please consider supporting this appeal, in association with Cheshire Streetwise CIC, for food bank items for the homeless and anyone struggling in our own community.  

The idea is Each Day between NOW and the 16th December you put an item into a box (instead of opening an advent calendar), and then bring the box to the Club, where we will arrange a central collection box.  Below you will see details of suitable items for donation.  There are many non-food items that are also essential everyday items for struggling families and homeless people.

FOOD ITEMS

  • Cereal / Cereal Bars
  • Soup
  • Tinned
  • Packet
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Tinned Tomatoes / Pasta Sauces
  • Lentils, bean and pulses
  • Tinned Meat / Fish / Vegetables
  • Tea / Coffee
  • Biscuits
  • Tinned Fruit
  • UTH Milk
  • Long Life Fruit Juice
  • Baby Food
  • Infant Milk Formula
  • Selection Boxes
  • Chocolates

NON-FOOD ITEMS

  • Toiletries
  • Deodorant
  • Toilet Paper
  • Shower / Shaving Gel
  • Shampoo
  • Soap
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Handwipes
  • Household Items
  • Laundry liquid/powder
  • Washing-up Liquid
  • Feminine Products
  • Sanitary Towels & Tampons
  • Baby Supplies
    • Nappies
    • Baby Wipes
  • Children’s Gifts

Don’t worry if you don’t do something every day, every little helps as they say and between ALL of the M&J section working together, I am sure we will be able to improve many many people’s and families Christmas.

So please start collecting and bring along next Sunday and/or on the 16th December (Lads and Dads / Christmas Meal).
