After news broke that an emergency food bank had been opened for employees of Bolton Wanderers, it’s time to highlight how you can become involved.
Staff at the University of Bolton Stadium have been able to take advantage of free supplies, with donations to the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust being received from local businesses, charities and rival football clubs - with Preston North End known to have contributed supermarket vouchers to the value of £2,000.
The April salaries of office and administrative staff are now two weeks overdue, while playing and coaching employees haven’t received a full wage since the end of February. To compound matters, the club entered into administration on Monday, leaving many fearing potential redundancies.
As a fan-driven website, it would be amiss of us to accept publicity and credit at what is such a difficult time for those involved. So, rather than request contributions ourselves, we invite you to donate directly to the Community Trust via their JustGiving page.
