Stags set up food bank donation point

14 September 2018

Mansfield Town have set up their own food bank donation point, which can be found inside the Sandy Pate Sports Bar.

The food bank donation point is accessible seven days a week inside the bar, and items will be collected each fortnight by local charities and distributed to food banks and soup kitchens in the area.

Donations of all sizes are welcome, and items can be placed in the donation trolley throughout the duration of a matchday.

Operations director Tina Broughton said: "As a club we recognise that this facility has the potential to make a huge difference in donations to local food banks and soup kitchens. Every fortnight we will phone the relevant associations to come and collect the products.

"The Sandy Pate Sports Bar is open seven days a week so donations can be made throughout the week. It doesn't matter how big or small the donation, and it does not necessarily have to be a food product.

"On average we have over 4,000 supporters attend each matchday, so if just a small percentage of attendees donated to the food bank, it would make a huge difference.

"As a community club, our goal is to help our community as much as we can."

Supporters are able to donate to the food banks now, and can find the donation point inside the Sandy Pate Sports Bar.
