Since lockdown began in March 2020, Tranmere Rovers Trust and Tranmere Rovers in the Community have packed and delivered emergency food parcels for residents in the local area.
We continued this throughout the winter and worked with the club to support the Super White Christmas appeal. Over the Christmas period, we raised funds through a Crowdfunder dedicated to the hamper appeal, received toys for children receiving the hampers, and food donations from schools, businesses and individuals. This allowed us to pack and deliver hundreds of Christmas hampers and helping local families to have a special Christmas.
Just this weekend, our volunteers packed and delivered more than 100 food parcels to people who had been referred to us by our fans. We would like to thank our fans for all of these referrals and donations that we have received over the past year. The support that we have received has been remarkable.
With the continuing of lockdown restrictions and furlough extension, there is still a need for food parcels to be packed and delivered in our local community. We understand that some fans and local residents may be going through a difficult time and would like to continue our support with our food hampers.
If you would like to refer yourself or somebody that you know to receive an emergency food parcel, please send an email with the subject ‘Food Parcel Request’ to firstname.lastname@example.org providing the name, address and number of residents where the food parcel will be delivered.
We would like to assure fans that referrals are sent directly to the Tranmere Trust and are packed and delivered by our volunteers. Alternatively, collections from the River Hill can be arranged, if this is more convenient.
To recognise the work that the Club has done during the Coronavirus pandemic, Paul Curtis designed the mural that can be seen on Borough Road. The image shows two children, Liam and Annie, sharing a piece of fruit in front of the Johnny King Statue.
