A big thank you to supporters who have donated food and money at our collections for Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank at the past two home games. Chelsea Supporters Trust will be continuing to collect donations before the Chelsea v Southampton game on Saturday 16th December and the Chelsea v Bournemouth game on Wednesday 20th December.
The Foodbank gives three days of emergency food to local individuals and families in crisis. As well as receiving 3 days supply of food, clients who attend any of the 3 foodbanks in the local area also received professional advice and a listening ear. They anticipate to provide 80,000 to 100,000 meals to local residents this year.
If you are able to, we would be grateful if supporters could consider donating to the collection, which will be located at the cfcuk stall, before the match, opposite the Fulham Broadway Shopping Centre on the Fulham Road. Whilst all donations will be gratefully received, the Foodbank is in particular need of the following items:
- Tinned Fruit
- Tinned Vegetables
- Tinned Meat
- Long Life Milk
- Long Life Juice
- Tinned Rice Pudding/Sponge Pudding
- Tinned Tomatoes/Pasta Sauce
They have also politely requested that donations of baked beans, tea and pasta are avoided as these items are in good supply at the Foodbanks.

After the recent Chelsea Supporters’ Trust SGM, we were delighted at have former Chelsea player, Pat Nevin as our special guest.
Pat Nevin is one of Chelsea’s most loved former players and graced the Stamford Bridge pitch with his style and flair in the 1980’s.
Pat is now a respected and insightful football pundit working predominantly with BBC Radio 5 Live and many Chelsea supporters will have read his erudite blogs in ChelseaFC.com.
Pat talked about his career with Chelsea and gave us his thoughts on the current Chelsea side, modern football and working in the media.

The meeting was recorded and can be heard in full here:
The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust Clean-Up group are planning another day at Brompton Cemetery on Saturday November 11th for a tidy up of the sites we have worked on previously and to plant some bulbs on or very close to the graves.
We recently visited the cemetery for a recce and flowering bulbs have been purchased ready to plant.
We’ll provide tools and gloves once again with some forks and shovels too.
The meeting place will again be at the Fulham Road entrance of Brompton Cemetery at 11.00 am Saturday November 11th.
It will also provide an opportunity for those of you who have not yet had the chance to look at the Jack Whitley Memorial stone, laid recently.
We hope to see some of you then.
