Touring the home, Club Chaplain and Head of Community Trust, Phil Mason said: “It has been a real pleasure to meet the veterans today and our Club is delighted to support such a worthwhile charity.”

The Blackpool Home provides 24 hour nursing and residential care for Blesma Members who require permanent, convalescent or respite care.

Blackpool Home Manager, Jacqui Longden said: “Our residents really enjoyed the visit today and many of them are attending the Blackpool v Bolton match tomorrow.
