Paul Sharpe, Middlesex FA coach development officer, said: “More and more people are finding themselves in the situation where they may need to engage with a food bank, and in Ealing we are partnering with the largest Trussell Trust organisation in London.

“In 2022 alone, the dedicated team at Ealing Foodbank served more than 39,000 people, with around half of those being aged 16 or younger.

“To put those numbers in perspective, there are fewer people participating in organised football across our nine boroughs (in Middlesex) than accessing this service in Ealing alone.”
