Are you ready to do something amazing?

We are really proud of the many activities, services, and opportunities we offer our young people of Bolton, but we simply would not be able to offer these invaluable activities without our incredible team of volunteers.  Each and every one of our 200+ volunteering team brings with them their own unique set of skills, talents, experiences, and above all, passion, supporting our young people to truly develop their potential.

Make a real difference to young people's lives

We literally could not provide the invaluable services we offer our young people without the support of our amazing volunteers. But it’s also a fun and rewarding opportunity for you too, to give back to the Bolton community, develop new skills, and make a real difference to the lives of our young people.

Volunteer of the Month

All our volunteers are amazing, but this month Chris Duffy shone out and has been awarded May’s Volunteer of the Month.

Chris was nominated by TWO of our members of staff and chosen by the Volunteering Team as his commitment and passion perfectly embody our values at BLGC. As a Mentor, Chris has made a significant difference to his mentee, particularly supporting him in overcoming his anxiety. Chris began volunteering with BLGC at the beginning of this year, and in Chris’ short time volunteering with BLGC, has already gone above and beyond to support not only his Mentee, but the rest of the Club, including supporting Football Development sessions and contributions at the Quarterly Volunteer Forum.

Thank you for being such an incredible BLGC volunteer and the huge impact you have made all across the Club already!
