Unused food donated to local charities

17 March 2020

Tranmere Rovers are more than a Football Club, and following on from the suspension of the season, we have donated food to five Wirral charities. 
 
The Club donated supplies which were stocked in preparation for Saturday's scheduled home fixture against Lincoln City and from the postponed Fleetwood Town game on 29th February. 
 
But following the EFL’s decision to suspend the current campaign due to the coronavirus outbreak, food donations were made on behalf of TRFC.
 
Tranmere Rovers are at the heart of its local community, and we always look to help out wherever and whenever we possibly can.
 
The following local charities received a collection of 300 pies, 500 bread buns and 250 burgers.
 
·        Cotton Street Project
·        Wirral Women’s refuge
·        Wirral Ark
·        Charles Thompson missions
·        YMCA
 
Cowshed Catering Manager Rob Leatherbarrow said: “It’s good to be able to give back to the local community when we can.
 
“Obviously the games have been postponed for the last two weeks and for both of those games we have had food ready to be sold. 
 
"Instead of throwing it all out which would be such a waste, it was a no brainer to donate it to some worthy causes in the local community.”
 
The Club are hoping to set up a volunteer team to donate food and partake in non-contact deliveries.
