Withycombe RFC are certainly ‘doing their bit’ during the on-going Coronavirus pandemic as they look to offer support to the Exmouth Community Larder.

Withy’s Mark Long explained saying: “The initial idea came from our Under-9s coach Richard Ralph and it was quickly embraced by first the Withy junior section and then both the men’s and women’s sections also got involved.

“The idea is for us, as a club to help support the great cause that is the Exmouth Community Larder in such testing times for many families in Exmouth and the surrounding areas.”

The club are seeking donations across their membership for any spare non-perishable food items or other items such as toilet roll or toiletries and are asking that they be taken along to the club this Friday (May 1) at 10am.

The list of items that can be used includes: tinned meat, cereals and porridge, tinned fish, tinned milk (long life or powdered), tinned potatoes /potato powder, tea bags, coffee, tinned vegetables, sugar, tinned baked beans, tinned fruit, tinned spaghetti, sponge puddings, savoury rice, tinned rice pudding, pasta / noodles / spaghetti, custard, pasta sauce, jelly, any soup, squash / fruit juice, am/peanut butter, honey / marmite, washing powder, washing up liquid, soap, shampoo, toilet rolls and toothpaste.
