Three members of staff from Fleetwood Town Academy took part in a Christmas tree clean up to help raise money for local charity, Trinity Hospice.
The club have strong links with Brian House – which saw the academy pay a visit to the site in October, with the first team staff and players going in December, and this initiative will go a long way in helping the children at the hospice.
Brian House / Trinity Hospice requires £1 million to run each year and this year, and £11,500 was raised for the Christmas tree collection - where staff went around Blackpool and the Fylde Coast collecting 1,400 Christmas trees - with all of the proceedings going directly to patients who are based at the hospice.
Janet Atkins, the Senior Fundraiser for Trinity Hospice was overwhelmed by the support from Fleetwood, and thanked all who have made a difference.
She added: “I want to say a huge thank you to all involved with the Christmas tree collection. Over 1,400 trees were registered on the day and the group didn’t help in their spare time, we wouldn’t have been able to make it a huge success.
“It was great to see how much you all enjoyed yourself and we can’t wait to see you next January when we go again!” – This campaign will return on January 11-12th 2020.
The club would like to thank Brian House and Trinity Hospice for their help over the years, and everyone will be ready for the next initiative to raise funds for such a great cause.
