Festive Fundraiser 2023

Together with the club, we are extremely proud to be delivering the Christmas Present Campaign again this year supporting over 1000 primary school children across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre who could go without a present on Christmas Day.

The Club and Community Trust are fundraising for this coming Christmas and beyond. As per the initial fundraiser, Simon Sadler’s Segantii Capital Management has also committed to match the final amount raised pound-for-pound.

You can donate to the initiative by visiting the Trust’s Just Giving page here.

The gifts will be collected in early December, with a community wrapping session taking place at the stadium. If you would like to help with the wrapping of gifts, please register your interest by emailing
