The Gingerbreads held a collection for Grantham Foodbank at their latest home game against Marine at The Meres on Saturday.

Grantham supporters were asked prior to the match to bring along at least one suitable non-perishable item and the collection proved very successful with three crates filled to the brim with food.

The collection was organised by the club’s social media manager Simon Hayes who said: “I’d like to thank every person who donated. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of our supporters”

Grantham Foodbank project co-ordinator Brian Hanbury thanked the club and its supporters. He said: “This will make real differences in local people’s lives.”

The Gingerbreads will be holding another collection at their next home game against King’s Lynn Town on January 24 for those fans who were unable to donate last weekend.

Pictured with some of the food donated are Gingerbreads chief executive officer Keith Horton and Simon Hayes.
