FC United are once again organising Christmas Comforts for the less privileged in our community.

On Saturday there will be a collection of warm clothing to go towards our Big Coat Day at the Chester game on 5th January.

Also on Saturday it will be FC’s Toy story initiative. If you have a toy to donate bring it to the game on Saturday. It will be donated to families and young people in need over the Christmas period.

All types of toys are welcome all we ask is that they are new or nearly new e.g. no jigsaw puzzles with pieces missing.

All donations of clothing and toys can be left at the green cabin in the car park.

The club will be opening Broadhurst Park again on Christmas day as part of its annual homeless persons initiative. There will be a meeting at 12.00 noon on Saturday for all those wishing to help with this.
