Bolton Wanderers Partners With BLESMA
Tue 29th Jul 2014 | Marketing & PR
Sky Bet Championship side Bolton Wanderers have announced BLESMA – The Limbless Veterans as their national charity of choice for the upcoming 2014/2015 season.
As 2014 is the centenary year of the First World War, the club has chosen charities that support members of the Armed Forces community.
BLESMA will be the national partner, while Winston’s Wish is a leading local charity helping child bereavement, including providing a service supporting bereaved children of military families.
There will be events held throughout the season in support of both charities, with more details to be announced in the near future.
Annette Hall, Head of Fundraising at BLESMA says: “We are absolutely delighted to have been selected by Bolton Wanderers as their national charity of choice for the upcoming football season.
“Football clubs have served as the focal point of many communities throughout history and we are looking forward to engaging with the Bolton Wanderers community to support our injured service personnel in what is a key year of Remembrance for this country.”
BLESMA – The Limbless Veterans is the national charity for all limbless service men and women, their widows and dependants. It was formed in the years following the First World War and became a national charity in 1932.
