Armed Forces

Supported through funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund, Blackpool FC Community Trust are proud to host a range of armed forces programmes within the Community. This includes serving personnel, families, veterans and families of veterans.

Within our sessions, veterans have the chance to engage with other members of the armed forces community, providing an opportunity to rediscover the unique camaraderie of serving soldiers. This includes coffee mornings, breakfast clubs, walking and running football, and the opportunity to represent Blackpool FC in veterans competitions against other clubs in the NW.

Veteran’s Gardening Club

Help BFCCT maintain our memorial space dedicated to Blackpool FC players who sadly lost their lives during the First World War. 
If you’re not that green fingered, then just come along for brew and a chat.
There are other memorials in need of maintenance down at the Arboretum which require a small army of volunteers, so once Veterans Gardening Club has finished there’s plenty of opportunity to get more involved.
A flask, wellies, gloves, and warm kit would be useful if you decide to come and help.

Where: Last Thursday of the month. 1000hrs to 1200hrs at the ‘Fylde Memorial Arboretum & Community Woodland’ in Bispham.

Cost: Free


£1 a session
