Mini Junior Chairman Hugh Duckworth said: “On behalf of the mini-juniors, we’re sending out an urgent appeal for help.
“We’d like people to come down and donate food, toiletries and cleaning products for the Salvation Army’s Food Bank.
“The Mini Juniors section ran a previous campaign in December, and we saw a tremendous response, and we’d hope to see that happen again.
“If people can make it down, we’d ask them to follow COVID guidelines. Wear a face mark, stay two metres apart and use hand sanitisers provided.”
The following donations are welcomed:
