Age UK's day at Ewood Park

The first of our four chosen charity partners will have their day at our home this weekend...

7 February 2019

It's Age UK Blackburn with Darwen's day at Ewood Park for Saturday's home Championship clash against Bristol City.

Rovers teamed up with Age UK Blackburn with Darwen in the summer, with the organisation one of our four chosen charity partners.

Age UK Blackburn with Darwen is an independent local charity, who have been working in the community to help older people for over 40 years.

They have 50 dedicated staff and over 100 volunteers, who deliver services and activities for older people within Blackburn with Darwen.

The Rovers squad will be warming up in Age UK Blackburn with Darwen t-shirts before the encounter at the weekend, and there will be bucket collectors dotted around the ground, with donations gratefully accepted.

Weather permitting, there will be a stall in the Foster's FanZone, whilst Age UK Blackburn with Darwen will also be taking part in the half time draw.

Fans may have seen recently that our player ambassador for the charity is Danny Graham, who recently tested out an age simulation suit to help raise awareness about the difficulties faced by the elderly on a daily basis, particularly during the winter months.

Games have been scheduled in for later in the season for our other three chosen charity partners - Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, East Lancashire Hospice and Child Action North West.
