Silver Jubilee Park have launched an appeal on behalf of Sufra North West London for foods for Christmas.

They are looking for donations of food to help the charity which is looking to provide food and shelter for some of the poorest people in the capital.

Sufra would be grateful for donations of many types of food and Silver Jubilee Park has a drop in point for donations.

Anyone who wishes to make a donation can do so for the next two weeks - up to 22 December, and the appeal has been extended to any spectators attending a match at Silver Jubilee Park who will be able to leave their donations in the clubhouse.

There a few matches at which donations can be made, we play Metropolitan Police on Tuesday night, 11 December, and Frome Town on 22 December while Edgware Town meet Wembley in a local derby on 18 December.

Items that can be donated are as follows: long-life milk, juices and squashes, sugar and sweeteners, tea and coffee, jam, honey, marmalade, cereals, oats, porridge, biscuits, crackers, cereal bars, instant noodles, cooking oil (1lt), rice, pasta, spaghetti, pasta sauce, curry sauce, tinned soup, red lentils, yellow lentils, baked beans, tinned spaghetti, tinned chick peas, tinned kidney beans, tinned fruit, tinned vegetables, vegetarian stock cubes, tinned tuna, tunned sardines.

Sufra NW London is a north-west London charity established in 2013 to address both the causes and consequences of impoverishment and poverty in the London Borough of Brent community.

Based on St. Raphael's Estate, Brent's most disadvantaged neighbourhood - almost in the shadow of Wembley Stadium - the Sufra NW Community Hub provides a life-line for people in crisis, including families living in extreme poverty and people who are vulnerable, homeless and socially isolated.

They provide them with the food and support they urgently need to survive, empower them to learn new skills and improve their wellbeing, and help them find work and become financially stable.

By working together and harnessing the goodwill of their neighbours, their aim is to build a stronger community one in which no one suffers alone in silence.
