Bolton Wanderers Community Trust teamed up with Bolton at Home and Urban Outreach to donate sports equipment to families who received food parcels whilst they were isolating during lockdown.
During this period families stayed in their homes for large amounts of time and often turned to sports activities to keep their children entertained and active.
However, for many families who were already receiving food parcels, getting access to and purchasing equipment for their children just wasn’t possible.
Bolton Wanderers Community Trust decided to partner with local housing association Bolton at Home and local charity Urban Outreach to donate sports equipment to families that are currently receiving food parcels.
It is hoped that these donations of equipment will enable these families to help keep active during the current pandemic and beyond.
Phil Mason, Head of Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, said: “We understand how important physical activity is for physical and mental well-being and so getting equipment out to those who are struggling to exercise with families seemed very important.
“Going forward we are working with a number of partners across Bolton on a project entitled ‘Keep Bolton Moving” as we continue to encourage physical activity for positive well-being and health.
“We are one club, one community, one town.”
