Annual Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving success

Bolton Wanderers held its annual Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving at the University of Bolton Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Around 200 people attended the event, which took place in the Platinum Suite and was led by Club Chaplain and Head of the Community Trust, Phil Mason.

Music was also provided by local musicians and singers as people remembered their loved ones and came forward to light a candle in their memory, with the names of those who have passed away, both recently and in years gone by, being shown on a large screen.

Speaking about the evening meanwhile, Mason said: "This is always a very moving service and it is one that gives people the opportunity to remember their loved ones and support each other in the time of loss.

"This year's service had a strong focus on family, faith and football and recognising the situation we currently find ourselves in, it is safe to say that those three things have never been more important to Bolton Wanderers.

"There was also a round of applause from those in attendance for all of the staff who work at the club for their efforts throughout the season and during the current circumstances, with people appreciative of the service taking place during a testing time."
