Bolsover Football Club is backing a charity which supports children, young adults and their families through the toughest of times.
Club chairman Ben Thomas was inspired to help Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice after a visit to its North Anston site.
The club, which shares a ground with Shirebrook Town FC, is planning an Elf Dash at Poolsbrook Country Park on December 16 at 2pm and auction of football merchandise, including a shirt signed by England player Harry Maguire.
Ben said: “Working with children is something close to my heart. I and my partner Christie, who is the club’s treasurer, have worked in care homes and special needs schools for nearly a decade. Other committee members at the club also do jobs that help to improve outcomes for children.
What a fantastic initiative from the club. We hope lots of money is raised to help make people’s lives a lot better.
