Football Beyond Borders x Wellness Kits Distribution Days
Out of the 50 special edition FBB x WK bags we put together, 25 were distributed in London and 25 in Manchester.
For our London distribution, we were able to extend our collaboration even further by working with Centrepoint - the UK's leading youth homelessness charity, where we donated 17 of our bags to their young people over the festive period - these were for 10 young women and 7 young men. We visited the Centrepoint's young people on the 28th December, and as we were still in the midst of the festive season, we bought a range of treats for everyone to enjoy along side their Wellness Kits. We then distributed the 8 remaining London bags around West London, thanks to the very helpful FBB minivan, which took us from Brixton all the way to Northolt and back!
On the 11th January 2020, we took the remaining 25 bags up to Manchester to distribute all around the city. Due to FBB having a base up North, we were lucky enough to be shown around the city by a local (FBB's amazing Clifford), who helped us ensure we visited areas where our Wellness Kits would be well received. The temperature had dropped greatly over the weekend so the most popular item in our distribution were the sleeping bags donated by Fulham FC's Cyrus Christie.
