Starting XI

We had so much fun at the Wellington Phoenix season opener on Sunday 8 October 2017! We teamed up with supporters clubs Yellow Fever and LFC Wellington once again for a special collection at the game.


In honour of the Phoenix’s 11th season we asked people to donate cash or supply our #StartingXI – the 11 items our Foodbank needs the most! People could donate at the game, or drop donations off at Four Kings, Backbencher or Churchill beforehand.

Three lucky people who donated at the game were picked from the crowd at half-time and won family passes thanks to the Wellington Phoenix!

We’re excited to announce that in total we were able to fill approximately 5 large collection bins with our most-needed food items, and collect almost $1,500 in cash!

Special thanks to everyone who donated, and to Yellow Fever and LFC Wellington​ for making this collection happen.
