The charity offers disadvantaged children with recycled essentials, such as clothing, as well as food.

for extra storage space.

“It was something that really interested me because it was something I’d thought of in the past in terms of whether there are charities for babies and children.

“You start to think how people cope.

“I saw the tweet that they were looking for storage so I gave them a message and thankfully they got back to me and we managed to sort something out.”

Sue Wade, of TippyToes BabyBank, said: “We are blown away by Alan’s care and generosity for our charity.

“This is amazing, and it means we are able to keep the items and continue to collect and sort equipment for families in need.

“To have the captain of PNE helping his local community is just awesome, with both of us being avid fans, it proves to us that the players really do care about their community and want to

support where they can.”
