Story

During the coronavirus outbreak, foodbank usage is set to increase significantly across the country. Burnleys foodbank, which is located inside the Burnley Community Kitchen in Charter Walk shopping centre, has already seen demand increase by 300% in recent weeks.

Burnley FC in the Community has been working in partnership with Burnley FC Supporters Groups since the start of the season to deliver matchday collections at Turf Moor for the foodbank. The response throughout the season has been positive, with significant collections taken at every home fixture.

However, the suspension of the Premier League has resulted in the postponement of this activity. The hope is to make up the shortfall via donations from businesses and the general public.

The Burnley FC first team players, led by captain Ben Mee, have already made a collective cash donation to the foodbank and this has been matched by the club.

For those who would like a practical way to support the most vulnerable in the town at this difficult time, a cash donation to the foodbank will help the facility meet increasing demand.

All donations will be administered by Burnley FC in the Community, Burnley FC's official charity.

Please donate what you can and thank your for your kindness.
