He’s a real fans’ favourite among the Sunderland supporters, and Duncan Watmore has once again shown why.
The winger has struggled with injuries during his time at the Stadium Of Light but he’s certainly shown that he’s a player who is proud of the community that he represents.
Supporters’ website Roker Report have set up a GoFundMe page to encourage people to donate towards Sunderland Community Soup Kitchen and the Sunderland Foodbank over the festive period.
At the time of writing, fans had raised a staggering £8400 as supporters looked to support the local cause.
Alongside the funds raised, Watmore and his family contributed an additional £1000 to the cause – a gesture which will no doubt go down well around the Stadium Of Light.
Thank you to the Watmore family, who have donated £1000 which will go straight to the Sunderland Community Soup Kitchen rather than to our GoFundMe page. What a superb gesture. This money will change lives. https://t.co/jSGa1y4r4W

Sunderland Food Bank also tweeted their thanks, saying: “We’re blown away by everyone’s kindness and generosity.
“Thank you so much to everyone who donated. You’re helping to make a massive difference to help local people in crisis.”
