Arbroath Club Make Incredible Foodbank Donation

Coaches, Committee Members and Players at Arbroath HSFP joined up to collect food for distribution to a local Charity, writes Tom Scott.

I understand the incredible haul, which also involved families and friends, will result in around 350 meals going to people who have been affected by the current pandemic.

A delivery to the Arbroath Foodbank went ahead on Tuesday Morning.

Well done to everyone who donated, and those within the Amateur Football Club, families and friends who shared the workload.
