An extract from the 1896 Club Review sums up our purpose perfectly;
“It is no longer our Club, it is theirs, and we merely manage it for them. It is no longer a mere place of amusement, but is a place which plays a real part in their lives; it is a place for honour and for success.”
Due to the tremendous support we receive, we’re able to provide opportunities for thousands of young people in Bolton each year. No matter how small, every donation made is gratefully received and goes towards helping the Club offer young people a place to access positive opportunities.
Monies raised through fundraising is invested into keeping the Club open, providing youngsters with somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.
To be able to continue our work, it costs £7,000 a day. All monies raised through fundraising is invested into our vital services.
