Rice donates to East end hungry

West Ham player Declan Rice has made a personal donation to Irons Supporting Foodbanks, part of the Newham Foodbank project.

Rice personally donated just over £4,000 to the community food bank to ensure Newham residents in the community don’t go hungry.

West Ham Joint Chairman David Sullivan donated £3,500 to the foodbank last month with a further £1,500 going to Merseyside Hub to manufacture PPE.

Skipper Mark Noble also donated his London Evening Standard column fee of many hundreds to the East end foodbank.

For more information on the campaign, you can follow Irons Supporting Foodbanks on Twitter @IFoodbanks.
