Forest’s City Ground pitch was deemed unplayable for Saturday’s match against Reading after a deluge of rain which meant that 3,000 pies, pasties and sandwiches were about to go uneaten.

It’s not the first time the club has supported the charity after one of their games fell victim to the weather and Forest are even hosting Framework’s Sleep Out event next month.
But that hasn’t stopped their latest gesture from receiving plenty of praise from football fans.
