Bessacarr FC has been innundated with food for people in lockdown.

“Donations have been received from people we don’t know, our coaches, parents of players and a massive shout out to our open age Sunday team for pulling together and dropping off four car loads of food and essentials.

“The shining light today has to go to the two thoughtful kids for supplying us with homemade cards to drop off on our deliveries. We’d love more of these if the kids want something to do while bored this week.

“Thanks again folks we have once again with your help managed to deliver to every address we have been given and will continue to do so throughout the week.”

He added: “We’ve heard some horrible stories on our travels but between us we’ve managed to put a smile on everyone’s face. Nobody’s sure how long we’ll be in this but this week between us we’ve proved we can support each over through this.”

Anyone wishing to donate or who knows someone in need can contact 07444635510 or the club’s pavilion will be open again next Sunday from 9 till 12.
