Our last effort was record breaking, we managed to donate enough food to fill the entire West stand and a bit more. Can we go even bigger this time???
After the success of our last Renfrewshire foodbank collection in December we are doing it again on the 14th of April at our match against Livingston. Our last effort was a record breaker with 2663 meals donated the equivalent of a full West stand. We would love to go even bigger this time so please plan ahead and donate what you can.
Following a final run through of the plan we have realised that time is very tight. This is compounded by the fact that there is a full hospitality booked for the next day means Campbell will be there to the early hours to get set up.
As a result we have been asked to move things forward if we can, so the bar will open at 6.30pm – a pre order list for drink will be available shortly and I will forward it asap – and we are asking people to be there as soon as possible. We hope to start the evening as close to 7.00pm as possible.
We apologise for the inconvenience and hope everyone will understand.
We have been informed by Renfrewshire Foodbank that at our recent collection we collected a grand total of 1118.32 KG of food enough for 2663 meals. This is our best effort to date and broke the metric ton for the 1st time. A HUGE thanks to all the saints fans and club for allowing us to do it in the 1st place and for helping us out. Also DAFC for their contribution both from fans and directors.
SMFC more than just a football club!!!
Please note that the allocation of tickets for Eventbrite has now sold out however tickets are still available from the club reception (cash only) and directly from the fans council but are extremely limited.
Come and join us for the first ever Fans Council Christmas Party.
Sunday 17th December in the Supporters Club from 12.30pm to 2.30 pm. Lots of fun, music and games with our DJ Stevie, and lots of St Mirren related prizes.
We also hope to have some of the players there to join in with all the fun.
The Guy above will also be there of course – it wouldn’t be a Christmas Party with out a Panda Claus!
Tickets are £3 for children under 11 and £1 for adults. They are available from Club Reception or on line here from Eventbrite.
Eventbrite make a small charge for tickets.
From 2:00pm on Saturday volunteers will be on hand at the stadium to accept all donations as we look to support our local foodbank.
The response to previous food collections has been amazing as kind hearted Buddies support this initiative.
The type of food we need is non perishable items such as:
Milk (UHT or powdered)
Instant Mash Potato
Tinned Rice Pudding
Tinned sponge pudding
Biscuits or snack bars
Fruit juice (long life)
Also toiletries for both men and women.
Together we can help feed people in need and build a stronger community in Renfrewshire.
Donations are welcome from Dunfermline fans as well St Mirren fans.
