Christmas Appeal 2023

This year will see Cliftonville Football Club host our ninth annual Christmas Foodbank Collection and we are pleased to again join forces with Fans Supporting Foodbanks NI for this latest venture.

The collection will be held ahead of the Reds’ Sports Direct Premiership fixture with Glentoran on Saturday, December 9 and supporters are invited to bring foods – with particular recommendations for easy-to-carry items such as Smash dried potatoes, Fray Bentos pies, corned meat and tinned ham – which will be gathered at a specially designated area near the Solitude turnstiles.

The appeal marks a continuation of the Club’s formal partnership with Fans Supporting Foodbanks NI, an initiative designed to help football supporters assist local foodbanks and which will see all donated goods gathered for further distribution to those in need.
