Brentford players have once again offered their support to a local charity. David Raya, Rico Henry, Dru Yearwood and Luca Racic visited the Hounslow Community 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 the London Borough of Hounslow.
The four players – along with Player Welfare Manager Peter Gilham – spent time at the volunteer run FoodBox last week. They helped prepare 7-day food boxes for families and individuals in the lead up to Christmas. Boxes prepared by the Brentford contingent will go in to the local community in the coming days.
While the players were there they learned about the charity – which provides emergency food to those who are in need and live in the Borough and can also help to make referrals to other organisations who can give further support and advice - and also took part in some promotional work to raise awareness of the charity, particularly with Christmas approaching. It is the second year that Brentford players have worked with the charity.
The FoodBox, 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.
