The charity is self-financing annually raising £1.5m to fund all the projects and programmes”.

 The Charity Gala Dinner is not only a celebration of the strides Bolton Wanderers in the Community has made over the last 10 years, but also a platform to forge new partnerships, strengthen existing relationships, and drive collective action toward a Connected Bolton, without disadvantage.
