Supporting Bexley Foodbank is just another indication that when we start a project we stay fully committed to it, says Erith Town chairman Mark Deveney
ERITH TOWN chairman Mark Deveney says he wants to make a big difference to struggling members of their local community this afternoon.
People can watch The Dockers’ Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division game against Crowborough Athletic for free, just as long as they bring at least four items of food, which the club will donate to their local foodbank.
It will be the second time that Erith Town have aided their local community as they did exactly the same thing when Punjab United visited the Erith Sports Stadium on Avenue Road last December.
“The Dockers are a community club and rather than taking admission over the turnstiles, we asked that people bring food items that could be donated to the Bexley Foodbank for people who live locally and have to use the foodbank,” said Mr Deveney.
“The day was so successful that Erith Town are repeating this again, when we host Crowborough Athletic today.
“I have had numerous meetings with Bexley Council and other local stakeholders to ensure that everyone knows the club and understands what we can do for the local community here.
“It is essential that everyone is able to share our vision for the club and also to bring some success to Erith.
“Supporting Bexley Foodbank is just another indication that when we start a project we stay fully committed to it.”
Erith Town are in 12th place in the league table with 18 points from 14 games, while Sean Muggeridge’s Crowborough Athletic are struggling in the bottom two with 10 points from 17 games, two points clear of the side at the foot of the table, Greenwich Borough.
“Any contributions will be gratefully received and could make a big difference for the festive period,” added the chairman.
