West Ham supporters have come together to back this year’s annual Christmas Toy Appeal.
The Irons Supporting Foodbanks group has provided support to the campaign, donating new sports equipment, trainers, football boots and clothing by the score, thanks to links with the club’s kit sponsor Umbro.
The Kevin Jenkins OBE Newham Christmas Toy Appeal is run by Ambition, Aspire, Achieve (AAA) in conjunction with the Recorder and supported by Community Links.
John Ratomski, from Irons Supporting Foodbanks, said the group was thrilled to get behind this year’s appealand said: “Thanks to a generous donation from our friends at Umbro, we have got off to a flying start.
“We’re sure we’ll be supporting the appeal even more over the coming weeks. No one wants to see a needy child go without at Christmas.”
John handed over the goodies to Candy Buckler from AAA at the charity’s Terence Brown Arc In The Park in Canning Town.
