Bridlington Town Football club will be ‘Helping the Hinge’ this Saturday (31st October) by opening a drop off point at the clubhouse on Queensgate.
The club has decided to support the Hinge project due to the fantastic work they carry out within the local community.
Organisers from Bridlington Town are asking people to bring non-perishable items (listed in the photograph)to leave at the club.
The drop off point will be manned from 12 noon.
The Echo has also partnered with the Hinge Charity Foodbank for the over one year, helping with appeals for people to donate food parcels and help out those less fortunate.
Megan Robinson from the Hinge said:
“The Hinge provides food parcels to the local community of Bridlington on a regular basis, however with most recent events the demand for food parcels has increased.
“Whether it be due to loss of employment, reduced working hours, change in circumstances, waiting periods when applying for benefits or financial difficulty, we always try our best to support individuals and families. We do rely on donations to be able to offer food parcels, therefore the donations raised from the event on Saturday would be of great benefit and enable us continue providing this service during these uncertain times.
“Since 23rd March 2020 (the beginning of Covid), we have distributed 1324 food parcels to individuals and families in the local community.
“This is a considerable amount compared to the food parcels distributed in the whole year of 2019 was 206.” added Megan.
