With the football season coming to a premature conclusion due to the coronavirus, coaches and players from Brixington Blues Youth Football Club were looking for a way to engage with the community.

Thanks to a ‘strong club spirit’, coaches from each of the age groups were able to gather a ‘huge’ stock of provisions to donate to Exmouth Community Larder which is seeing increased demand during the crisis.

Club chairman, Richard Taylor said: “It is great to see our club members and their families coming together like this to support a hugely important local initiative.

“We may be missing out on our community football, but it is reassuring to know that we still have a strong sense of community across our wonderful Brixington Blues Youth teams, and I am immensely proud of this contribution.”

Anyone who would like to donate to Exmouth Community Larder should visit its website or email info@exmouthlarder.co.uk
