Following an urgent request for food and donations by Cobham Food Bank, All Stars touch player Vanessa Brown and volunteers at the Food Bank were overwhelmed by the support shown by Cobham RFC members.
Vanessa said: “It’s an amazing collection that is all being delivered and we’ve also had just under £1,000 donated. This is such great support from the rugby club - thank you.”
Club President Lionel Frewin said: “Even in these turbulent times, the family spirit of Cobham RFC shines through. A huge thanks to Vanessa for her unstinting work and care for those less fortunate than ourselves.”
This was echoed by Club Chairman Steve Heard: “Thank you so much to all Cobham members who responded so wonderfully to this urgent appeal and initiative from Vanessa.”
Cobham Food Bank is still looking for donations and anyone who can help should contact Vanessa on 07387 262384, either by calling or via WhatsApp.
