MALVERN Town FC In The Community have presented Malvern Hills Food Bank with funds raised during our summer Crossbar Challenge.
The local community were challenged to hit 500 crossbars over the course of the summer months and over 200 people took part, including the Mayor, players and staff from all Malvern Town teams and local junior clubs, to achieve the target.
Through donations we have been able to help the most vulnerable in our community heat their homes this winter.
“We are delighted to be able to donate towards our local communities’ heating bills,” said Community Development Officer, Bryan Craven. “Hopefully people in our community won’t have to choose between heating and eating this winter.
“The local Food Bank does such a fantastic job and next year we have a target to beat to raise even more vital funds for them.”
As part of Project 2022, the club hopes to have our Community Hub and Kitchen up-and-running during the year ahead, which will allow us to do even more to help and support local people of all ages.
A recent Crowd Funding campaign has yielded over 50 backers, including Malvern Hills District Council and Worcestershire County Council, as we convert the old dressing room block at the HDANYWHERE Community Stadium as part of our strategy to further strengthen our community involvement.
