Stevenage Football Club Chairman Phil Wallace has provided the clubs brand new North Stand to be used as a drop-in centre for Feed Up Warm Up, a local charity that helps provide homeless people with food, clothing, care and support...
Every Monday from 5-7pm from 22nd March 2021, local people will be able to visit the Lamex Stadium’s North Stand in-order to access hot food, have a warm drink, get a haircut, pick up some clothes or toiletries and to meet Feed Up Warm Up’s brilliant team of volunteers.
Phil Wallace said, "Frankly I got fed up looking at this great £2 million facility we had built standing empty. It took me 5 years to circumnavigate all kinds of obstacles to build it and it is a privilege to use it for the good of the community once a week. The Feed Up, Warm Up charity have a great reputation for providing food and temporary shelter to those most in need and when I read they needed a facility in Stevenage, I made contact. The venue is fantastic and I am delighted that it will bring something to look forward to once a week for those in our community that need help."
Shane Cole, Feed Up Warm Up Project Founder said, “We would like to thank Stevenage Football Club for agreeing to let us use their facilities for our programme. Having the new venue for our Stevenage drop in will enable the project to work at its full capacity again and will give us the space to continue assisting our clients.
"We welcome Stevenage Football Club on board with the project and look forward to working with them to help us reach out to more people in need of our help.”
