Wingate & Finchley say they are proud to be supporting Finchley Foodbank ahead of opening their ground for donations.
The Maurice Rebak Stadium will open on Tuesday, February 9 between 7-9pm to collect donations to support the foodbank's vital work during the pandemic.
The foodbank, based in High Road, East Finchley, supports more than 100 families each week and now more than ever, it is relying on the community's help for donations.
Volunteer Anna Maughan said: “We are currently supporting an average of 320 people a week, so any food or monetary support is very much appreciated.
"Wingate & Finchley offering the use of their ground will hopefully provide us with some much-needed support."
