KHIST is now planning our regular collection for the Christmas Food Appeal and will be manning 2 collection points outside Aggborough Stadium on Sunday 5 December, prior to the Harriers’ home FA Cup match with Halifax. We are giving early notice in the belief that we will, once again, be able to count on the generosity of the local community and Harriers fans to support this deserving charitable cause.
Kidderminster Food Bank re-opened earlier this year on 18 September at it’s new site in the Swan Centre. Last year it fed 4,424 to people in crisis However, there are real concerns for this winter, as this demand is likely to increase further with the setting in of colder weather. Our members, Harriers supporters and the local community have always been most supportive of our previous appeals. These have, year on year, exceeded expectations and helped to make the Festive Season that much more enjoyable for the less fortunate of our residents. Items to be donated, as well as usual food items, might include selection packs, chocolates, biscuits, mince pies, tins of ham, etc.,
Living with Covid makes this year’s appeal so much more important and is not helped by the lack of Harriers home fixtures before Christmas. Our pre-Christmas collections in previous years have contributed over 400kgs of foodstuffs, and there have been additional, generous cash donations.
Donations can be made in our shop.
