Christmas is celebrated by many as the happiest time of year, one of celebration and revelry, but for many thousands of families around the UK it can be one of great hardship, where just putting a meal on the table can prove financially challenging.

The Trussell Trust backs a nationwide network of more than 1,200 food banks that provides emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaigns for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. Horsham Football Club is lending its backing to the trust’s Christmas Appeal to help those in crisis in the local community by inviting supporters to bring non-perishable food donations to Saturday’s Isthmian League Premier Division match with East Thurrock United.

If you can help with a donation, please come along on Saturday and pass your items to members of Horsham’s Youth squads who will be collating the collection.
