Three local charities were handed cheques totalling £2,000 before Saturday’s win against Welling United.

Cheques were presented to The London and Slough Run, Aik Saath and Destiny Support. The donations represented Slough Town’s share of the Community Shield Fund from last season.

Founded in 1984, the London and Slough Run helps the homeless and destitute living on the streets and now involves over 80 volunteers from the local area. Last year, a number of Slough Town officials and supporters participated in the Sleepout for Slough's Homeless, raising over £1,200 in the process.

Based in Slough, Aik Saath’s mission is to work with people from all communities, faiths and backgrounds to promote and encourage conflict resolution and community cohesion through training, campaigns and projects.

Destiny Support helps people who face social exclusion, health issues, little or no family support and financial barriers a result of unemployment.
