On Easter Sunday managers and players from Brinklow Juniors fc paid for and took part in distributing 200 meals for the Elderly & Vulnerable in their local villages, which Included Brinklow, Wolston, Pailton, Church Lawford, Ryton On Duinsmore & Binley Woods.
The community club volunteers were given PPE and briefed as to what to do for the many villagers who had requested help.
Declan Mellett , the football club chairman stated "we are very much a part of the local community for Brinklow , Wolston and nearby villages and we are delighted to be able to organise something to give to those in need". The 200 meals will make a massive difference and having been given the advise as to what to do , we knew how important is to be safe and to help those self isolating in their homes. It was a huge success and the club can be very proud of the help it’s given today.
The meals were accompanied with beautiful handmade Easter cards and personal messages from children in our younger aged teams.
A big thanks to all at the Bulls Head in Brinklow for cooking and packing the meals, The Shirleys for donating 4 sacks of Potatoes for the meals, The Brinklow Deli and The Malt Kiln Farm shop, both for the use of their delivery trays.
The donations received whilst we were making the deliveries will be all sent on to the NHS Covid19 fund.
