Durham announce plans to kick-start #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY campaign

Durham have this morning revealed plans to raise funds for the #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY campaign starting with an incentive in their FA Women’s Championship fixture against Charlton Athletic at Maiden Castle this weekend.

The Wildcats’ playing and backroom staff are keen to do their bit to helpĀ the #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY campaign spearheaded by Marcus Rashford, to ensure that nobody in the local area goes hungry in the coming weeks and months.

The club have built strong links within the local community over the last few years and have regularly given their support to a range of incentives such as the County Durham Foodbank.

With 2020 being once of the most challenging years that County Durham and the UK as a whole have ever faced, there is a real danger of families, and in particular, children needing additional support to ensure that they do not go hungry this winter. With this in mind, Durham are set to begin their fundraising drive to #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY.

The Wildcats have announced that this weekend’s FA Women’s Championship fixture against Charlton Athletic at Maiden Castle will be streamed live on the club’s official Facebook page. Durham are appealing to fans who watch the game to make a donation to the club’s JustGiving Page in support of the #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY campaign.

Further fundraising events involving Durham’s players, staff and officials are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

Durham’s fixture against Charlton Athletic promises to be excellent viewing. The Wildcats have made an exceptional start to the new season and are only currently being denied top spot in the FA Women’s Championship by having a lesser goal difference than leaders Sheffield United, a side who they defeated 6-0 in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup in midweek.
