The Darwen End concourse at Ewood Park was transformed into an educational marketplace on Thursday, as Rovers played host to the North West Eco Conference.

The annual event gives children a platform to learn about the environment, energy and sustainability, and involves a great range of activities.

Throughout the day, the children were able to enjoy various hands-on tasks and take part in live debate and competitions.

There were live animals and a trash band, made up of recycled materials, as well as a competition which encouraged children to create instruments from recycled goods and perform a song using them.

Rovers chief executive Steve Waggott said: “It was a pleasure to host the North-West Eco Conference and see so many local schools enjoying some thought-provoking activities and raising their awareness on this subject.

"It’s really important for Blackburn Rovers to get involved in such important topics and do our bit for the environment. 

"As a club, in 2017, we handled around 150 tonnes of waste across all of our three sites - all of which was reused, recycled or recovered.”
