Argyle fans are urged to take donations
ARGYLE fans are being urged to get a kick out of helping others in need, by taking food and cash donations to the club's home game tomorrow.
The Argyle Fans' Trust is holding a Christmas Appeal at the game against York City to help the Plymouth Foodbank.
Supported by the Green Taverners and Forza Verde fans' groups, the event is aimed at collecting money and food donations which will help financially hard-pressed people in and around Plymouth to make ends meet and get food on the table.
Trust spokeswoman Linda Fleming said: "The Plymouth Foodbank was set up as a community project to help these people. On Saturday we're asking fans to donate food and money to help ensure the Foodbank can help as many people as possible this winter.

"All donations are welcome, especially tinned goods such as tomatoes, fruit and vegetables and dried goods including sugar, milk, rice and pasta.
"There will be two collection points – the Trust Gazebo and the Green Taverners Suite – where we will have our volunteers and some decorated Christmas trees.
"We're hoping, through the generosity of our supporters, to top last year's really successful collection where fans donated over 250kg of food through our 'can a fan' appeal."
Linda said the trust was grateful for the support of Tesco stores from Newquay to Ivybridge, which are donating food worth £550, and Forza Verde and the Green Taverners who are providing invaluable help.
She added: "This is our chance to show what a very special community we have at Plymouth Argyle Football Club, at a time of year when we are very aware of those less fortunate than ourselves."
