A “Refugees are my football family” campaign is being organised by the T-shirt company Philosophy Football and a special fund-raising shirt has been created.
The campaign is supported by the Football Supporters’ Federation, Football Action Network, Football Against Racism in Europe, Football Beyond Borders, Kick it Out, the Hope not Hate campaign and the fanzine When Saturday Comes.
The Philosophy Football co-founder Mark Perryman is also organising a convoy to Calais carrying club scarves, which are among the items requested by charities operating in the region as winter approaches.
If anyone has old but clean Chesterfield football scarves that they are willing to donate they can be left with the Chesterfield FC Community Trust at The HUB. Other warm scarves, gloves and hats will also be accepted and sent by the Trust to the appeal.
