Blackpool Football Club and its Community Trust are working together to help tackle some of the cost-of-living challenges for the local community this winter.
With financial support from Blackpool Council and Simon Sadler’s Segantii Capital Management, we will be opening up the doors to Bloomfield Road and operating Warm-Up Hubs to provide families and those socially isolated and vulnerable with a place to keep warm, socialise and have access to free WiFi, coffee, biscuits and hot food.
Commencing from Wednesday 7 December 2022 in the Moretti Lounge and intended to run through to March 2023, the stadium will be accessible at the following times, providing people with a chance to sit, keep warm and talk to Blackpool FC Community Trust staff:
Family Warm Hubs:
Monday to Friday, 3pm-6pm, during school weeks and will include a meal, homework clubs and activities. These will operate in term time only.
Pool Together Hubs:
Tuesday and Thursday, 12pm-3pm and will include teas, coffees, biscuits, and activities to engage in.
Determined to make a difference and relieve some of the pressures on families and vulnerable, older adults in the town, the Club has engaged with its partners and sponsors about further supporting the initiative. A Just Giving page has also been setup HERE if any fans would like to contribute.
Supporters can additionally aid our efforts by volunteering to work on the schemes. Whatever way, shape or form you can offer your services would be greatly appreciated, as we come together for the people of Blackpool.
For further information, or to find out how you can get involved and volunteer, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01253 348691.
Working with residents as young as two years old up to adults in the later stages of life, Blackpool FC Community Trust provide a diverse range of programmes to increase social inclusion opportunities; improve physical fitness, health, and education.
