Sam Baldock has added his support to the Don’t Dump It, Donate It campaign run by local Brighton & Hove charity Off the Fence.
Brighton & Hove Albion fans are being asked to drop off any unwanted winter clothing at collection bins located outside the Amex ahead of Saturday’s match against Fulham.
Volunteers from the charity will also be rattling their buckets and collecting donations at the game and the Albion striker stressed the importance of the appeal.
He told seagulls.co.uk, “It is easy to forget that there are many people out there less fortunate than ourselves.
“The majority of us will come to the game on Saturday, be it playing or watching, and then afterwards go back to our warm homes with the comfort of our family and loved ones, but there are plenty of people who don’t have that option.
“It must be awful to be sleeping on the streets with nowhere to go for refuge, but to make matters even worse, the falling temperatures during the winter months must be unbearable.

“However small or large your donation, it could make all the difference.”
“An extra layer or two could really make a difference to someone who has no shelter, and can not only help keep them warmer but could potentially save their lives, so I urge all Albion fans coming to the Fulham match to give whatever they can for this really important cause.
