CUOSC: Surgery and foodbank collection this weekend

An opportunity to provide some much needed help

16 August 2017

CUOSC Surgery and Foodbank Collection at the Cheltenham game.

CUOSC will be holding their next Supporters’ Surgery on Saturday, between 1.15pm and 2.45pm in the Study Centre, located next to the Blues Store.  

Barry Carter from the CUSG Disbaled Supporters Group will also be in attendance to answer any questions or queries our disabled fans may have.

As part of their surgery CUOSC will be collecting food for the Carlisle Foodbank which has reported a higher than normal requirement for donations to help with those who use the service through the summer months. 

CUOSC representative Billy Atkinson said: “Our last foodbank collection received a fantastic response and we are hoping for more of the same. It appears that demand is high at the moment from people who really need help, and it's fantastic that United fans will be doing their bit this weekend. 
“A few other Supporters’ Trusts do the same, with fantastic results, and we hope that our Surgery will provide the perfect opportunity for supporters to contribute, should they wish to do so. If everybody who comes to the game brings along just one item, it would help tremendously.” 
The Carlisle Foodbank provides food and toiletries for local people in crisis, and will accept the following items: 

+ Milk (UHT or powdered) 
+ Small sugar (500g) 
+ Long life fruit fuice (carton) 
+ Packet soup
