Trams kick-off New Year with collection for community kitchen

Kick-off: the Trams are looking to help the South Norwood community

Croydon FC’s first game of 2022 will be running a fund-raiser for the South Norwood Community Kitchen.

The match, against Tooting Bec, kicks off at Croydon Arena at 3pm on bank holiday Monday, January 3.

“Come along and cheer on the Trams, and bring donations of food, toiletries and any surplus Christmas gifts,” say the organisers.

Top team: the community kitchen volunteers seek donations at the game

“Start the New Year by doing some good!”

The turnstiles open at 1.30pm.

“Please bring your donations then and avoid the pre-3pm rush!” the organisers say.

“The Clubhouse will be open for a comforting pint before and after the match.”
