TOWN AID HOMELESS

5 December 2017

Matchday food delivered to Salvation Army for less fortunate

 The Club are helping the plight of the homeless on matchdays by delivering any unsold pies and pasties to the Salvation Army’s Lyndon House. 

The new initiative was in place for the first time at Saturday’s game against Nottingham Forest with hundreds of pounds worth of food despatched after the final whistle.

“It just makes sense to do this,” Town stadium manager, Greg Pillinger, told the Club website.

“Our matchday caterers, Centerplate, agreed to the idea straightaway and we have the help of Hawk Taxis in taking the food to Lyndon House

“We obviously have food hygiene rules to adhere to and we have had support from the Environmental Health Officer (EHO) from Ipswich Borough Council.

“It worked really well on Saturday, with pies, pasties and sausage rolls all delivered to the Salvation Army and we will continue to do the same over the rest of the season.”
