The Community Trust yesterday arranged for food which would have otherwise gone to waste to be donated to a local housing project.
Food had been prepared for the live streaming of Chesterfield’s game against Woking in the hospitality lounges at the Technique Stadium.
After the event had to be cancelled at short notice, Keith Jackson from the Community Trust contacted Lifehouse Church, who arranged for the food to be delivered to Lighthouse Homes in Brimington.
Paul Hollingworth, a senior pastor at Lifehouse Church, said: “On hearing of the football club’s wish to generously distribute the food, it was a privilege to ensure it went to a great local cause via Lighthouse Homes.
“Chesterfield Football Club has a key role to play in our community and it is a privilege for Lifehouse Church to partner with them through the Community Trust.”
Lighthouse Homes is a Christian charity and company limited by guarantee, which exists to relieve poverty and advance the education of people.
Lighthouse Homes offer Christian inspired residential communities, providing opportunities for change in both lifestyle and values. All are welcome at Lighthouse Homes, those of all faiths and none.
