Bolton Wanderers and Bolton Wanderers Community Trust have teamed up with Bolton at Home for the fifth successive season to bring more opportunities to local communities.
The partnership will enable BWFC and BWCT to offer opportunities to hundreds of young people across Bolton through the Premier League Kicks initiative.
In the last 12 months alone, BWCT’s Kicks programme has offered positive engagement, sports, training and volunteering opportunities to more than 2,000 disadvantaged young people with the overall aim of getting young people off the streets and into positive activities.
The club will again dedicate a home-league ‘community match’ to recognise the partnership; this will include allocating thousands of free tickets to thank local volunteers for their community work and give disadvantaged families the opportunity to enjoy Sky Bet Championship football when it might be otherwise unaffordable.
There will also be support for the Bolton at Home Sunday League, with the end of season Open Cup final continuing to take place at Macron Stadium.
Jon Lord, Chief Executive at Bolton at Home, said: “We’re committed to giving people in Bolton more opportunities to prosper and enjoy a better quality of life. Our partnership with the Wanderers encourages more people to take part in community activities and offers them new experiences, whether this is through weeks of quality sports coaching or a day at the football.”
Phil Mason, Head of Community and Club Chaplain said: ”The partnership between Bolton at Home, Bolton Wanderers Football Club and Bolton Wanderers Community Trust is vital for the local community. It allows us, as a football club and a charity, to offer support and opportunities to some of the most disadvantaged communities in the borough.
“Our Premier League Kicks programme is a beacon of light in Bolton engaging thousands of young people each year in positive engagement.”
