Fleetwood to remember former colleague, Lisa Birtwistle

Fleetwood Town Community Trust alongside partners from Healthier Fleetwood to host an event to remember and to celebrate the life of our loving colleague and friend, Lisa Birtwistle.

On Sunday 12 May 2024 at 11am, you're invited to celebrate the life of Lisa Birtwistle, a former colleage here at Fleetwood Town Football Club.

This is a FREE family colour run, starting at Marine Hall in Fleetwood down at the beach area, and after the amazing support 12-months ago, it's sure to be a day to remember for friends, family and loved ones.


Lisa was an incredible person, who always carried an infectious smile with her and made a positive difference to every person she spoke to. 

She made a huge impact in all of the roles she had, beginning with Fylde Coast YMCA where she coordinated a range of physical and mental wellbeing programmes to increase the life chances of the people of Wyre.

After several years of service she moved to Fleetwood Town Community Trust where she oversaw a number of community development projects, largely specific to young people and enhancing opportunities for children to access a range of sports.

She would then go on to work for Fleetwood Primary Care Network as a Social Prescriber where she would support the residents of Fleetwood in accessing provisions in the town with a wider purpose of tackling health inequalities and bringing people together.


The Colour Run - which will take place on Sunday 12 May 2024 - will provide those who knew Lisa and those affected by the accident two-years ago, and will be an opportunity to bring her family and friends together, spreading joy and happiness in her memory, after sadly passing away in April 2022.

The event last year saw over 150 people in attendance, and the Trust were pleased to confirm a few weeks later that over £500.00 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support, the chosen charity by Lisa’s parents.

This year, money will be raised on the day under the banner of Fleetwood Town Community Trust (Charity No. 1146037), which will all go to a local charity support.
