Upcoming Fulham home clash designated as Wanderers' Memories Match

Bolton Wanderers' Sky Bet Championship clash against Fulham at Macron Stadium on Saturday 10 February has been designated as the club's official Memories Match in support of those living with dementia.

The initiative is part of the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust’s ongoing support of Bolton becoming a dementia friendly town, beginning in Horwich.

The BWCT are part of the Bolton Dementia Action Alliance, which has the aim of bringing local organisations, groups and businesses together to improve the lives of people living with dementia.

Bolton Wanderers are holding this special matchday meanwhile to raise the awareness of dementia, social isolation and loneliness, alongside promoting Bolton Wanderers Community Trust’s Sporting Memories sessions that take place once a month at Macron Stadium.

Prior to the day itself, BWFC will be asking fans to contribute by sharing their best memories of their time supporting the club via Twitter with the hashtag, #BWFCMemories.

A selection of those submitted will also be included in the club's matchday programme.

Bolton Wanderers are also asking fans to wear their retro BWFC shirts to the match to help mark the occasion.

For more information on how the club are supporting Bolton Dementia Action Alliance or on the Trust's Sporting Memories sessions, please visit www.bwct.org.uk or call 01204 673790.
