Giving Back: Foodbank Drive – MAN v FAT

How did you get the players involved?
We first made the lads aware of the issue that is faced through food poverty by sharing stats around the local community, and highlighting the significant impact these donations bring to the local community.

We also make it as simple as possible to donate by taking the necessary steps in our planning stage to maximise the collections we can receive.

It is also important to keep the lads up to date with how things are going, reminding them through WhatsApp so that the foodbank drive keeps at the top of peoples minds.

What were (if any) the issues in organising?
The first time you set this up will always be more challenging than subsequent years. Whilst largely successful, keeping the awareness up takes continuous communication. It’s also important to make people aware that they should only donate what they can afford to safely donate and to not feel pressured by other peoples donations.
