Enter Burnley FC in the Community’s Military Veterans Fundraiser - and raise funds to support our Military Veterans!
This year, Burnley FC in the Community’s Military Veterans Football Team have been invited to represent England in a European Football Tournament. This will be the fourth time since 2017 that the tournament is taking place. Denmark (2017) and Ukraine (2018/2019) have facilitated the previous tournaments.
The purpose of the tournament is to let Military Veterans from partner nations meet and socialise, and to play football in the spirit of comradeship.
The tournament will take place in Rjukan, located southwest of Oslo, in the county of Telemark about 2-hour drive from Oslo.
Whilst the Veterans themselves are raising money for this trip, we are seeking to fundraise for the trip to ensure a truly unique experience for the squad.
Burnley FC in the Community support the local armed forces veteran community within Burnley and East Lancashire through sessions and opportunities to improve their overall wellbeing.
Our Veterans’ programme is award-winning and we were proud to be recognised once again in 2021 by the Ministry of Defence with a Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award. BFCitC have engaged with over 150 local military veterans to improve all forms of health for those within the armed forces community. This has been in the form of trips to other breakfast clubs and museums, health workshops, organised lunches, outdoor activity days and much more!
Our Veterans Programme offers a varied and interesting range of activities to engage Veterans irrespective of age, physical & mental health needs and capabilities. Our weekly sessions offer a breakfast club, outdoor activities with gardening/eco projects to support the environment, fitness and football sessions for veterans, spouses and their families, mixed and ladies only fitness, crown green bowls and social sessions. Other activities to enhance our weekly sessions include indoor climbing sessions, boxing and cookery courses to improve mental wellbeing and physical health as well as diet and nutrition. We work closely with other Veteran supporting organisations to enhance, maximise reach, share resources and promote our combined support.
