DUMBARTON FC has continued to support our community during the festive season, with more organisations receiving gifts from the club this week.
Last week, some of our players helped out at the Old Kilpatrick Food Parcels project to help those less fortunate than themselves.
And more initiatives, as part of the SPFL Trust’s Festive Friends project, have taken place this week.
On Monday, West Dunbartonshire Community and Volunteering Services attended the C&G Systems Stadium to collect 10 boxes filled with DFC merchandise, tea, coffee and biscuits.
Robert Jones and Jaime Wilson were on hand to give the boxes to Daren Borzynski and David Robertson from the service.
After that, it was off to Crosslet House Care Home in Dumbarton to hand over more boxes. Liz McInnes, George Drummond and JP McAllister received the gifts from the players.
On Wednesday it was the turn of Football Memories to receive boxes from the club. George McKay, and Euan and Colin Middlemass, from the project, picked them up from Donald Morrison at the stadium.
An image gallery of all three presentations is below.
DFC general manager Antonia Love said: “We are happy to do what we can to ensure that those less fortunate than ourselves can have a better Christmas.
“All parties were extremely grateful and it really did show that during the festive season, it is sometimes better to give gifts than to receive.
“Although Christmas will soon be over, we would encourage any community groups who want to work with DFC to get in touch with us.”
