Celtic Juniors launch Christmas foodbank appeal

STALYBRIDGE Celtic Juniors have launched a Christmas foodbank appeal to help those in need in the town.

“The parents and carers of our players and our club volunteers are always happy to donate items to help people less fortunate in the community in Stalybridge.

“In previous years we’ve helped Sandwich Angels, the Trussell Trust and Marcus Rashford’s free school meals project and the response has been fantastic. Hopefully this year will be no different.”

The soccer school on Mossley Road, Ashton, is open every Saturday between 10.30am and noon and players off all abilities from age four to 12 are welcome. The final session of the year will be on Saturday, December 4.
