Robins Trust Christmas Charity Food Collection 2023

— 2 minute read

The Robins Trust will be once-again supporting the fantastic work of the amazing charity, Cheltenham Open Door in the run up to Christmas.

This is the third year we have coordinated collections on behalf of the Cheltenham-based charity who do fantastic work to support vulnerable, disadvantaged and lonely people.

We will be operating a special collection point before the home game against Leyton Orient on Saturday, December 16, by the ticket office in the main car park.

Alternatively, donations can be dropped into the CTFC ticket office during their opening hours between December 11 and December 15.

Our donations help Open Door to provide friendship, in a welcoming and non judgemental space, free-of-charge and without the need of referral.

They serve home home-made hot meals, breakfasts, hot drinks, and snacks and offer food parcels and shower and laundry facilities.

They will once again be serving a variety of seasonal meals and providing comfort over the Christmas period.

They also offer much more, please visit their website to see the amazing work they do.

If you feel able to donate just one small item, it can make a huge difference to someone else in our community.
