Giving is our goal this Christmas: Wood & Sweeney visit The Hub

access_time 2 months ago

The left-backs give back: Connor Wood and Jayden Sweeney visited Highams Park Food Aid last week, to find out more about The Hub and how the Leyton Orient Christmas party campaign will support its festive meal deliveries.

The players packed crates of food to be taken to The Hub at All Saints Church in Highams Park, and made up food parcels to be given to beneficiaries. As local lads, helping the community is key for them both: “for the Club as well, being in the middle of a community, it’s vital that we can help each other out,” Jayden said.

Peter Rogers, one of The Hub’s founders, explained how the food aid project started with just 5 families around Easter 2020, but expanded quickly and to date has provided more than 70,000 meals to the local community. With life now returning more to normal for many after the pandemic, The Hub has seen donations and support drop off – and Peter urges anyone who can to support them with food or financial contributions, social media support and volunteering.

Of course, you can also support The Hub by booking your 2021 Christmas party at Leyton Orient! For every Christmas party meal booked at Leyton Orient this year, we will be giving back to Highams Park Food Aid, to help deliver Christmas meal boxes to the E4 community.

“For the people attending the parties, they know that although they’re going to enjoy themselves, they’re also helping out as well; so I think it’s a great initiative that we’ve got on here.”
