Swansea City’s charity partner Matthew’s House will provide fans with an insight into its work at Friday’s home clash with Rotherham United (3pm).

The charity, which aims to provide hospitality and hope to the people of Swansea, is based in the city’s High Street and has over 80 volunteers from every background, belief and circumstance, helps those most in need.

Its premises include a pay-as-you-feel café, which intercepts food destined for bins and turning it into delicious home-cooked meals; a laundry and warm shower facility for the homeless, and dignity packs for men and women suffering poverty or living on the streets.

Since opening two years ago the café expression has intercepted 29 tonnes of food and served more than 35,000 meals; and they have distributed over 550 dignity packs to men and women – offering hope to people when they are often walking through their lowest, loneliness and darkest time.

For the Easter Friday game at the Liberty, Matthew’s House will have an information stand as well as holding a bucket collection around the stadium to raise the much-needed funds that keep the charity running.
