In association with the Club and GTFC SET we are once again launching our annual Food and Toy appeal. This year has been very tough for a lot of people and more people than ever need help so that they can at least have some sort of Christmas. Without help there are many local families that will not have a decent meal and children that will not receive any presents at all. The response to last year’s appeal was amazing and it made such a difference to those families in need. We know this year our fantastic supporters will once again come together to support those in our community who are less fortunate.
Please donate any tinned and packaged food with good shelf life remaining. Ideal items are:
- Pasta and Rice
- Tinned Tomatoes and Pasta sauce
- Tinned Fish and Meat
- Tinned Beans and Vegetables
- Tinned Fruit
- Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate
- UHT Milk
Also toiletries such as soap, shampoo and deodorant will be gratefully received as would household items such as washing up liquid, detergents etc
Please donate any unwanted NEW toys, sorry we cannot take any previously used items. If you haven’t got any to hand you could add an item or two to your next shop or indeed purchase something from the club shop to donate. Ideal items are:

Not forgetting our furry friends we will once again be taking donations for the Ark rescue centre. Any pet food, bedding or pet accessories will be gratefully received.
If you would like to donate money instead then that is no problem. You can do so online here : Mariners Trust » Connecting Club & Community » Mariners Trust Donation or leave your donation at the club office.
Where do I take my donated food, toys or pet supplies? – You can drop your items off at the club shop during the week. We will also be opening the Trust bar to receive donations on Thursday evenings 4pm to 6 pm starting on 25th November and Sunday mornings 10am -12pm starting on 28th November.
For the Boreham Wood and Chesterfield home games we will also have donation stations at the turnstiles.
Your donations will all go to benefit local people and we will be working closely with local organisations to ensure they go to those most in need. Thank you in anticipation.
