Aberdeen FC Community Trust Chief Executive Liz Bowie said:

“We are delighted to be partnering once again with our friends at CFINE at this year’s Aberdeen FC Community Trust Day at Pittodrie on 4 February 2023.  With the current cost of living crisis, it has never been more important that we continue to pull together as a community to ensure that we support each other.  Our fans were incredibly generous last year donating over 3/4 of a ton of food which equated to 1814 meals.  I really hope that we will be able to surpass that total this year and play our part in addressing food poverty.  I would encourage anyone coming to the game to bring food donations (non-perishable of course!) to the collection point which will be situated in front of the Richard Donald Stand before kick-off at 3pm.”


CFINE Chief Executive Fiona Rae said:

“CFINE is delighted to be partnering with Aberdeen FC Community Trust for another Community Trust Day at Pittodrie this Saturday 4th February. Here at CFINE we are very proud to be continuing this relationship and working with AFCCT to ensure continued awareness of the difficulties faced by so many individuals and families across our local communities.

 Thank you AFCCT and to all of the Red Army– your generosity is greatly appreciated!”
