Southend United supporters will remember that for the last couple of years around this time, together with the Shrimpers Trust, we ran a food drop for charities that work with the homeless.
Last year it was for Harp, and very grateful they were too.
This year the chosen charity is “Off The Streets”.
Of course, we are unable to do a food collection or at least not in the same way this time round, so the Shrimpers Trust have decided to support their current scheme which intends to literally keep a number of homeless people off the streets this Christmas.
Southend supporters have been very generous in the past and we hope they will consider this a worthwhile cause at this, especially, tricky time for the homeless.
If you'd like more information about this cause and scheme and/or could spare the cost of a Match Day Ticket or Pie/Pint, the money collected will go a long way towards making a life (or two) easier.
Please donate what you can by visiting the Trust's website.
