Join Our Xmas Food Bank Appeal This Saturday

Food Bank Collection 1000x500 

As part of our on-going community outreach, Essex Cricket will be collecting food at The Cloudfm County Ground this Saturday for Chelmsford Food Bank.

This is aiming to provide help for people within our community who are experiencing crisis and we’re asking Members, supporters and local residents to donate what they can during these difficult times. Chelmsford Food Bank is understandably experiencing high demand for food and basic amenities and has separated items into urgently needed and regularly needed categories.

Urgently Needed Items:

• Long life milk
• Tinned meat
• Tinned tomatoes
• Tinned potatoes
• Tinned fruit
• Rice pudding/custard
• Jam
• Long life juice
• Sugar
• Toilet paper
• Toothbrushes

Regularly Needed Items:

• Rice
• Shampoo
• Carrier bags (reusable)
• Squash
• Deodorants
• Tins or packets of custards
• Peanut butter
• Razors
• Shower gel
• Coffee
• Multipack snacks

Donations are being collected inside the Essex Cricket Store, and you can pop down with any items between 10am and 2pm this Saturday.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Club had raised £2185 for The Trussell Trust and would like to thank everybody who has donated so far. If you’re in a position to, and you would like to donate, you can do so by clicking here.

Thank you for your support during these testing times and your donations will go a long way to helping those in need.
