Rugby Editorial 11th Apr, 2020   0

FOOTBALLERS in Warwickshire will be scoring a winner with the launch of an Easter ‘Meals on Wheels’ service for isolated pensioners.

Brinklow Football Club and the Bulls Head in the village will run a ‘BFC Meals on Wheels’ service on Easter Sunday, preparing and delivering 200 Sunday roasts free of charge for pensioners and vulnerable people in the area.

The meals will be prepared and picked up from the Bulls Head and delivered at pre-agreed times by a team of volunteers from

Meals will be left on doorsteps by volunteers with PPE equipment, abiding by social distancing guidelines.

Brinklow FC is proud to be a community club and wants to show its support during the crisis in recognition of the community’s support of the club down the years.

Established in 1913, the club is made up of 250 members with two senior sides and a junior section that runs from micros (reception school year) to under 16s.

Club chairman Declan Mellett said: “We are a community driven club and during this incredibly challenging time we wanted to give something back to those who may be living alone or have fallen upon difficult times.

“Easter is a time for celebration and togetherness, and since this is not possible for many we wanted to bring the celebrations to them. BFC Meals on Wheels is just a small way of doing this.”

The club will be delivering from midday to 3pm on Easter Sunday. Requests can be taken until 2pm on Good Friday, you can do this (or request on someone else’s behalf) via telephone, email or Facebook messenger.
