Blackburn Rovers Community Trust have been handed a welcome boost after receiving a donation from the MARS Milk Play Fund.
The £300 donation will be used by the Trust to set up over 50s ‘Walking Football’ sessions.
David Dunwell, Funding Development Officer and coach at the Trust, said: “The donation from the MARS Milk Play Fund has come at a great time for us.
“We can now fill a gap in the local community by setting up new ‘Walking Football’ sessions to encourage over 50s to become more active, whilst providing an enjoyable team environment.”
The MARS Milk Play Fund was set up to help individuals, clubs and groups to get active and will donate £300 twice a week to worthy causes until October.
