Trio team up to provide hot meals to disadvantaged children this Christmas

18 December 2020

Millwall fans, Millwall Supporters' Club and Millwall Community Trust have once again united to provide 100 hot meals per day for disadvantaged children during this Christmas period.

The project will build on the October half-term programme where the trio came together to provide over 500 meals for children and their families.

Thanks to Marcus Rashford, the plight of those on low income during this pandemic has been highlighted and the access to good, healthy meals has been incredibly important.

"We are so proud to once again support those in the local community who are in need at this time of year," said Tom Gale from the MSC. "Millwall Supporters’ Club have always traditionally supported a charity at Christmas time and donated large sums of money over the past few years.

"We are a community club and that rightly means a lot to the fans, who always support the charitable giving from the funds we raise through our paid membership scheme. Each year we are attracting more members, which enables us to give more and more each year."

The meals will be provided with the support of Millwall Football Club, whose chefs will be preparing the meals and passing them on at cost price, enabling the greatest amount of meals to be provided for the money.

Sean Daly, Millwall Community Trust CEO, explained: "The Trust has a great relationship with the Supporters' Club, and they are always looking to support our programmes within the community - projects like this show how important the club is in the local community."
