Families in need given a helping hand by Leek Town players

LEEK Town footballers have won the heart of a Potteries charity with their kindness.

The players have donated £500 to The Hubb Foundation, which is a lifeline for families in Stoke-on-Trent, providing free activities and meals for children during the school holidays.

The Blues squad had been saving up for an end-of-season party, but this had to be cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic, so it was decided to money should go to charity instead.

The Hubb Foundation, which was founded last year by Port Vale owner Carol Shanahan, has delivered over 100,000 meals to families in need during lockdown, as well as welfare packs and also promoting educational activities.

Leek Town chairman Jon Eeles, together with players Marc Grocott and Tim Grice, went along to Vale Park - home of The Hubb Foundation - to see first-hand work the charity is undertaking.

The group were welcomed by former Blues player Adam Yates, the charity's community manager.

Jon said: "As club chairman, I am very proud the players have donated some of their funds to charity, particularly The Hubb, and I think it's really great that non-league and professional clubs in Staffordshire are working together and giving something back to the community.
