Caley Thistle to help vulnerable groups during coronavirus pandemic through ICT TogetherNess
Inverness Caledonian Thistle have launched a scheme designed to help the isolated or vulnerable during the coronavirus pandemic.
Called ICT TogetherNess, the club are appealing for fans or businesses to donate unopened food essentials – such as beans, rice, pasta, tinned goods, confectionary, tea and coffee – or household essentials like soap, sanitizer, toilet paper and wipes.
The club will then create food and household parcels to be delivered to supporters in need by staff, management and players from Caley Thistle.
The main reception at the Caledonian Stadium will be open during the week from 9am to 5pm to accept donations.
ICT aim to extend the programme to the larger community, and have already had discussions with one food bank in the city.
Inverness manager John Robertson told the club's website: "At this very difficult time, everyone at ICT believes that we must do our best to make a difference to the lives of our fellow Highland citizens and the football club can be the hub to help make that difference."
