A food bank has received a boost thanks to families and children of Letchworth Garden City Eagles FC.

The donation, including 300 kilograms of food - or roughly 555 meals - was part of a Reverse Advent Calendar charity drive.

The initiative, which has been running for three years, encourages members to donate an item each day leading up to Christmas Eve.

Club chairman Simon Efford said: "This year families and their children from our club have really supported the campaign with donations continuing through January.

"It’s fantastic as a local community club with over 600 members when local businesses help us out with different aspects of running our club so we’re really pleased to be able to show our support for others within our community in return.”
