BOURNEMOUTH stars supported the town's foodbank by arriving at the Vitality Stadium with shopping bags crammed full of food.

The Cherries launched a campaign ahead of their Premier League clash with Arsenal for supporters to drop off donations in supermarket trollies dotted around the stadium.

All donated items will be given the Bournemouth Foodbank who provide emergency food and support to people in crisis.

And two first-team players lead the way when they stepped off the team bus carrying Tesco bags in each hand.

Team-mates Steve Cook and Ryan Fraser both brought their own donations to support the initiative.

Striker Callum Wilson also played his part by visiting the local foodbank to drop off his donations and speak to volunteers working to support the community.

The 25-year-old also tweeted on Saturday: "Remember, there will be trollies outside turnstiles tomorrow so you too can make a donation to the Bournemouth Foodbank."

It was a reminder of the difficulties Wilson faced as a youngster growing up in Coventry.
