Alison Buckland, Foodbank Administrator at The Woking Foodbank (for which Byfleet Methodist Church is a satellite outlet) info@woking.foodbank.org.uk has asked if anyone can help in response to the request below. Please contact her direct if you can.

I'm delighted to let you know that Squeeze Glenn Tilbrook; food bank supporter/ambassador and former frontman of the legendary band Squeeze is touring in your area in November with his band Squeeze. He is performing at: G Live, GU1 2AA on Wednesday 6th November 2019 at 7.00 p.m.

FOOD COLLECTION: Glenn and his team will have food collection points at G Live on the night to benefit your food bank. Squeeze will be tweeting to collect as much food as possible in the run-up to the concert!

CASH COLLECTION: You are welcome to collect cash donations on the night if you wish. During Glenn's last (solo) tour, playing to smaller venues; 28 Foodbanks collected cash in the hour prior to the concerts raising an average of £50, this tour is a lot larger so expect to see larger donations. If you wish to collect please take some local food bank branded collection receptacles* (you can also take your own banners and leaflets along on the night if you like).

!! COMPLIMENTARY CONCERT TICKETS: Glenn really enjoyed having food bank volunteers on his tour and is offering two complimentary concert tickets to the any food bank who can provide volunteers on the Squeeze Autumn/Winter tour to help man the food donation points and collect cash before the concert (which you can take away on the night). If you would like to do this; please let Alison know so I can then let Glenn's management team know the names of the volunteers.

Thanks so much!
