BOLTON LADS & GIRLS CLUB

Bolton Lads and Girls Club is a youth club and registered charity based in Bolton, Greater Manchester. Over 128 years ago, we were one of the first organisations in the North West to recognise the importance of providing young people with a safe haven to spend their free time.

We are one of the largest youth clubs in the United Kingdom, with a membership of over 3,500 young people. Based in Bolton’s town centre, we are open 7 days a week, 51 weeks a year and welcome all young people aged 8 to 19 years old (up to 21 for young people with disabilities).

We offer a range of targeted and universal provisions including sports, arts, mentoring and community outreach work.

What this event and sponsorship money will do

With the money raised from YOUR efforts, the team at Bolton Lads & Girls Club plan to reach out to even more young people across the area, further stepping up their effort to ensure ‘Lads & Girls’ across Bolton get an opportunity for happiness and a sense of community through engaging and educational activities.

BOLTON HOSPICE

Bolton Hospice is a cause truly worth getting behind, providing 18 inpatient rooms to those who need vital end-of-life care, as well as 24-hour advice, day support services and outpatient clinics, all catering to the physical and emotional needs of those suffering after a terminal diagnosis.

Although the hard work of the trustees and staff at Bolton Hospice makes a huge difference to people in the Bolton community, they need your help to maintain and develop the vital services they offer, including Lymphoedema clinics, physiotherapy and even bereavement support.

Diseases like cancer still effect a huge proportion of the UK population, and the Bolton community is no exception, meaning Bolton Hospice is a cause well worth getting your running shoes on for – so let’s get training and collecting that sponsorship!
