The Jammers Fans Association is set to hold its third foodbank collection, to support those using the Maldon Food Pantry this Christmas, on Saturday 3 December.

It will be held before Maldon & Tiptree FC's home match against Gorleston FC, between 1.30pm and 3pm.

This time, organisers are urging fans and residents to donate items suitable for Christmas hampers, such as Christmas puddings, nuts & sweets, Christmas cake, stuffing, and others.

They are also calling for the following items:

  • Tinned meals
  • Tinned meat, fish, fruit, and vegetables
  • Pasta and pasta sauce
  • Sugar
  • Jam
  • Tinned tomatoes, baked beans, and soup
  • Toiletries
  • Long life milk
  • Nappies – sizes 3, 4, 5, and 6

In a statement, the association said: "Your generosity previously has blown us away.

"Please give what you can and let's help people out this Christmas!"

This latest collection follows two previous successes, in December 2021 and in August this year.

Last time, the Association donated hundreds of items to Maldon Food Pantry, the local foodbank. They hope to repeat that success once more.

Those wishing to donate are asked to bring their items to the Maldon Stadium, in Park Drive, before kick-off.
