“We sincerely hope everyone is ok and coping as best as possible. Its difficult times right now and its vital communities pull together. Hope to see you all safe, and soon!”
The support includes a helpline for people, a dedicated Smallshaw Hurst Community Action Group, volunteering opportunities, activity packs for children and families, activities to combat stress, loneliness and isolation and other services.

“It shows that we’re not just a club that are united on the pitch but also off it.
“This is a time when it’s so important that we’re all doing everything we can to meet the needs of our community and I’m so proud of our team for digging deep.”
