Celebrating 10 Years of BFCitC!

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Burnley FC in the Community! Throughout the year, a diverse range of events will take place, beginning with a 10-year dinner held last week.

The dinner honoured individuals who have made significant contributions to the charity over the past decade. Several guests were recognized with a special 10-year award, expressing gratitude for their invaluable support and dedication to the charity.

Brian Nelson was among those recognized. He has served as the chair of the charity’s trustees since day one, providing invaluable support over the years. We also honoured two of our longest-serving employees, Peter Morville and Nathan Mottram, who have been with the charity since 2014.

On Saturday 17th February, Burnley FC in the Community hosted a day of family fun and entertainment during the Burnley vs Arsenal fixture.

We were thrilled to see numerous children and families at our face painting station, up our climbing wall and getting involved in all our competitions. A special highlight was welcoming our Half-Time Penalty Shootout Winners to Turf Moor, who were selected from our online competition and various community projects.

We extend a heartfelt thank you to all members of our community for their participation and generosity. Your support means a great deal to us, and we hope you thoroughly enjoyed your day with us!

Looking ahead, there will be many more exciting events over the next 12 months as we celebrate the charity’s 10-year anniversary. Stay tuned for more details. For now, everyone at Burnley FC in the Community wants to express our immense gratitude. Thank you!

Thank you to MyDentist, TCB Designs, Nelson and Colne College, Lancashire Archives and Burnley Football Club for supporting this event!
