Tranmere Rovers’ first-team players helped out by packing and delivering food hampers this week to those in need in our local community.
The team joined TRIC and Tranmere Rovers Trust in putting together parcels of essential items, before going out to deliver the parcels to support those who are vulnerable during these difficult times amidst the cost of living crisis.
Tranmere Rovers Trust regularly deliver food parcels to those in need in the local community, and the help of the players this week was hugely appreciated by all involved including by putting smiles on the faces of the recipients of our food parcels.
Kane Hemmings, club captain, highlighted the importance of projects such as this during a difficult time. “It’s definitely a community club that wants to give back and as players, if we can do the same, I think it’s important because times aren’t easy for anyone at the minute.
“Hopefully as a club, as players, as members of the community, we can try and help out as much as possible and it’s always nice to try and help out with when you can.
“It’s frightening out there at the minute, and for a lot of people, they have to make tough decisions on what they can and can’t have, and stretch their money as far as it can possibly go.
“Schemes like this mean they’re going to help a lot of people in their time of need, and hopefully the club and the Trust is in a position to help as many people as possible, and if the players and staff can do it as well then that’s great.”
