Bristol Rovers Community Trust CEO, Adam Tutton, said; “I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to offer the families and children in our community the opportunity to play football with us this summer, for free. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected so many people in our community, so to be able to offer these sessions to those families who have been working tirelessly throughout lockdown and to those who rely on free meals at school, is our way of wanting to help during the school holidays. We’re also fully committed to making sure that the children who attend our sessions, receive a free packed lunch for them to take home. None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for the incredibly generous donations that we’ve received from supporters and people from within our community.”
