Clothes stack up for Bradford Bulls’ appeal
10:00am Saturday 14th December 2013 in News
Bradford Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul is urging the community to throw their weight behind the club’s Belong Christmas Appeal.
The Bulls have teamed up with a host of city-based initiatives and, for the past fortnight, the club’s Provident Stadium home has acted as a hub for unwanted clothing and bedding which will be distributed to those who need it most this Christmas.
Streetwise, a scheme operated by Life Church, Hope Housing, Horton Housing, Disc and The Brothers are all set to benefit from the club’s Christmas collection.
Players, staff and supporters alike have been handing over various items since the appeal’s launch last month.
Janet Bannister, the founder and manager of the Immanuel Project which is acting behalf of the other charities involved in the appeal, said: “We would like to thank everyone at the club who have already donated to this fantastic cause.”
Those wishing to donate items have until Thursday to take them to the Bulls’ store, which is open from 10am until 2pm today and 10am until 6pm, Monday to Friday.
