The efforts of the Hibernian Community Foundation will benefit from a generous donation from the Hanlon Stevenson Foundation. 

Through HSF Paul Hanlon and Lewis Stevenson will be matching the £850 raised by Hibernian supporters through the recent REWIND: Time for Heroes event celebrating that day in May. 

The money will go to supporting the Hibernian Community Foundation's Famous Five A Day programme.

Each week, the Hibernian Community Foundation supports local families with essential groceries and ideas to keep mentally and physically active at what has been a testing time for so many – in conjunction with partners Tesco Leith, Cash For Kids and Fare Share.

Paul Hanlon said: "During the current crisis HSF have changed their focus to helping families in need and have made donations to a few charities to assist with meals and food parcels.

"We are happy to match the Hibs supporters' donation of £850 raised at the recent REWIND Time for Heroes Event in support of Hibernian Community Foundation’s Famous Five a Day Programme."

Lewis Melee, Hibernian Community Foundation Development Manager added "We really appreciate the support from the Hanlon Stevenson Foundation, this donation allows us to expand our project further and provide parcels for another 3 weeks."

"The feedback from the programme has been great so far and we are delighted to support over 100 families every week, food poverty is not a short term problem. The support of HSF and other partners lets us work together to reduce the levels that exist in our direct communities."

The club and Hibernian Community Foundation would like to thank both Paul and Lewis for the donation. 

HSF are approaching the end of their first year and as a small token of their appreciation to the Hibernian Family they are running a free competition with some unique Hanlon and Stevenson Memorabilia as prizes. Please visit their Facebook page to enter!
