伊普斯維奇鎮足球俱樂部的經理說,該俱樂部正在支持一個慈善機構發放食品包裹,"以幫助那些需要的人"。貧困家庭(FIND)每周向伊普斯維奇及周邊地區的家庭發送120至150個食品包裹。二級聯賽俱樂部鼓勵支持者支持該慈善機構,球員和工作人員一直在幫助分類和包裝包裹。"經理Kieran McKenna說:"作為一個俱樂部,我們儘可能地提供這種支持是很重要的。

FIND每周花費超過1,000英鎊,主要來自公眾捐款,用於購買包裹中的食物。它也接受來自伊普斯維奇各超市的捐贈。該慈善機構為有需要的人尋找住宿,並在他們找到永久住所時支付他們的住宿費用--同時還提供家具。麥肯納說。"這是一個非常重要的慈善機構,俱樂部支持它。"這是一個在社區中做了很多重要工作的慈善機構。"他說伊普斯維奇鎮是一個 "社區俱樂部",並補充說。"我們所代表的人對我們非常重要,我們需要幫助那些需要幫助的人。"這位36歲的主教練說:"我們有特權為足球俱樂部工作,當我們可以幫助這些事業時,這是一個值得驕傲的義務和責任。

1990年創立該慈善機構的莫林-雷內爾說,俱樂部參與其中 "很好"。除了球員和工作人員貢獻他們的時間外,她說俱樂部給了她500張票,讓她分發給那些慈善機構的人。"她說:"人們正在掙扎,我們必須學會相互關心。


Ipswich Town Football Club is supporting a charity to hand out food parcels "to help those who need it", the club's manager said. Families in Need (FIND) sends out between 120 and 150 food parcels a week to families in Ipswich and surrounding areas. The League Two club encouraged supporters to get behind the charity and players and staff have been helping sort and pack parcels. "As a club it’s important we offer that support as much as we can," manager Kieran McKenna said.

FIND spends more than £1,000 every week, mainly from public donations, to buy food for its packages. It also receives donations from supermarkets across Ipswich. The charity finds accommodation for people in need and pays for them to stay in guest houses while they find somewhere permanent - and also provides furniture. McKenna said: "It’s a really important charity that the club are behind. "It's a charity that does a lot of important work in the community." He said Ipswich Town was a "community club", adding: "The people who we represent are very important to us and we need to help those who need it. "We’re in a privileged position to work for the football club and it's a proud duty and responsibility to help out with these sorts of causes when we can," the 36-year-old manager said.

Midfielder Sam Morsey said it was a "fantastic organisation, we’re all happy to help". Players and staff have been to FIND's offices in Ipswich to help its volunteers and the 31-year-old said it was "important to show we’re not just saying [the club will help] - we’re doing it as well". He added: "There’s a lot of stories that we hear about [the cost of living], sometime you can be in your bubble and not realise that this exists. "When you look at this great foundation and how much food they go through weekly it makes you realise the sort of problem we face."

Maureen Reynel, who founded the charity in 1990, said it was "great" the club were involved. As well as players and staff contributing their time, she said the club had given her 500 tickets to hand out to those the charity supports. "People are struggling more, we've got to learn to care about one another," she said.
