On Thursday afternoon four members of the Brentford FC First Team squad visited FoodBox in Brentford. As part of the visit they were able to support and witness the work undertaken by a team of volunteers in providing food and other provisions for the needy in Hounslow Borough, as well as advice to those in need of help.
Nico Yennaris, Moses Odubajo, Luke Daniels and Lewis Macleod spent time at the volunteer run registered charity and helped prepare food boxes for both a family of four for Christmas Day and a box of provisions for one adult to last one/two days. All four spoke of their admiration for the work undertaken by the volunteers and said how it had opened their own eyes to the wider community.
They also said how important it was for the local community to look after their own and in this respect they themselves said that would support and promote this initiative in future. That promotion includes taking part in the production of a video to raise further awareness of the charity.
The Centre, located at the Brickfield Community Centre in Brentford, is continually looking for more volunteers and of course donations particularly of non perishables and money to help extend the service. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
