Trust Team Up with Royal British Legion

Using the power of sport, Blackpool FC Community Trust will be engaging with older, socially isolated members of the ex-service community in Blackpool and Lancashire to help bring them together to share memories, re-connect and improve their physical and mental health. The programme is for those who are aged 50+ and the first meeting takes place on the 29th November at Bloomfield Road, Seasiders, FY1 6JJ. Blackpool FC Community Trust Inclusion Officer, Katy Hooton encourages all ex-service personnel to get in touch and get involved. Katy said, “This is a fantastic and unique programme for the ex-service community in Blackpool to get involved. The programme is free of charge and will benefit the participants in a number of ways. If you know anyone who is 50+ and has served in any of the forces, please contact Blackpool FC Community Trust on 01253 348691.” For more information on any of the above, please contact 01253 348691.
