Andrew Taylor visits Bolton Young Parents Home

Defender makes a trip to one of the club's local charity partners for the current campaign

Defender Andrew Taylor paid a special visit to Bolton Young Parents Home on Tuesday afternoon to meet the patrons of the unit and spread a little cheer prior to Easter.

The centre, which is based on Radcliffe Road in Bolton, provides a safe residential place for young mothers aged 16 to 25 and their children.

Here, they are encouraged to live independent lives, within a controlled, nurturing environment enabled by experienced support workers who work 24/7. 

They are guided into healthy routines and taught basic cooking, financial, health and personal skills to help them in their ultimate move to independence.

The organisation is one of the club’s local charity partners for the current campaign and have previously enjoyed a designated matchday here at Macron Stadium.

And ahead of the upcoming Easter break, Taylor made the short journey to the house where he handed out Easter eggs and small cuddly rabbits donated by the players themselves.

Speaking following the visit, Wanderers’ No.20 said, “It’s been a really humbling experience coming down here. I had no idea that somewhere like this existed in Bolton, but it really is a fantastic facility.

“The women who look after the girls are incredible too – they are an absolute credit to the scheme.

“Hopefully coming down here today with a few treats will have been a nice change for everybody too and it’s something I enjoyed myself as well.”
