Many donations were given which will benefit The Salvation Army

Following an extremely successful Christmas campaign in support of the Salvation Army, the mini juniors section at Preston Grasshoppers appealed to Prestonians to donate food and vital supplies.


Hoppers operated a drop-in centre at the club’s rear car park on Sunday, 24 January.

Their aim was to gather donations of food which will help those in need.
