Leading health and wellbeing provider, Westfield Health have donated £27,000 to Bolton Wanderers Community Trust which will fund opportunities for those with disabilities to improve their health and wellbeing through sport and positive engagement.
Westfield Health has donated over £15 million to the NHS and health and wellbeing charities since 1996. By supporting Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, Westfield Health hopes to improve the quality of life of more people.
The donation will be used to work with young people and adults with additional needs in Bolton, and to help them lead healthy lives through positive engagement, much like current participant Sophie who attends our Healthy Goals project, she commented: ”It helps me keep going, walking and doing different things. I get fit and healthier, because it’s important. I have a lot of friends at the club, some of them are new friends. I never knew most of them, but now we are good friends and talk to each other in the week.”
Bolton Wanderers Community Trust aims to inspire people and raise aspirations while supporting physical and personal development to create a more active and healthy way of life and to narrow the gap of disadvantage.
Westfield Health Chairman, Graham Moore, said: ”Our UK Healthcare company based in Bolton has supported BWCT for many years, so we are pleased to continue the support this year as an indication of our appreciation of their high standards of service they provide to the local community, particularly those less fortunate.”
Bolton Wanderers Community Trust’s Head of Trust, Phil Mason commented: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Westfield Health. It’s wonderful that they are supporting our work in this way and helping to change lives.”
