How it works...
Saints Southwest work throughout Cornwall, Devon and Somerset delivering various Education, Community and Football Development programmes. Saints Southwest use these sessions as 'drop off hubs'. The items are handed to the Saints southwest coach, who will then bring the items back the Saints Southwest office for initial storage.
Working on a referral or application basis, Saints Southwest office staff will review all enquiries and then do our very best to deliver the items where they are needed. If we can't help, we will contact or signpost your enquiry to a local food bank or other support organisation.
WHAT WE ACCEPT...
Hand food into any Saints Southwest session, where it will be taken to our main office. It will then be stored and shipped out to those who need it.
Hand your old Football boots or trainers into any Saints Southwest session. They then will be be sent to the who needs them.
Hand in your old kits to Saints Southwest and we will recycle them, sending them out to who needs them or it will be send to kit aid.
Any old sports equipment which can be reused. Saints Southwest will send it out to local schools, clubs and other youth organisations.
As part of the Saints Southwest 'Tackle Poverty Programme' the Secret Santa is an annual initiative to not only to help support families and young people at Christmas with being able to open a present, but also to raise awareness of poverty in the South West.
Creating and promoting awareness of this issue, which many people reluctantly find themselves in is vital to ensure people through our society are supported. By raising awareness, will hope others will also be encouraged to help and support 'Tackle Poverty.
