Donations of items for the four hampers were received from generous NTISA members & members of the public with each hamper containing at least forty products. 

The draw took place during the first-half of Nantwich Town FC versus Radcliffe FC match at the Optimum Pay Stadium in the Pitching In Northern Premier League – Premier Division on Saturday 11th December 2021.

The hamper draw, which NTISA have organised annually since 2014, raised £100 for the Nantwich foodbank.

A representative from NTISA said: “Thank you to everyone who provided an item for the hampers or bought a ticket for the draw. The money from the draw will go to Nantwich foodbank, a charity that provides emergency food for families and individuals in times of crisis.”

NTISA are a group of supporters who are passionate about Nantwich Town Football Club. As well as attending games home and away, they organise fund raising events such as race nights and quiz nights to raise much needed additional revenue for the club.

Since the NTISA formed in 2012 their fund-raising efforts have resulted in a tannoy system for the for stand, Amenity area by the Dabber Diner, a brand new ride on lawn mower for the ground staff and a fantastic disabled area, including ramp and shelter for disabled supporters at The Weaver Stadium.

The NTISA also work closely with the Board and Management Team at Nantwich Town in developing the club further, both on and off the field. Their support and contribution are invaluable.
