Following on from our initial efforts last week in relation to the food bank donations and deliveries (click here to read more>) the Club continued its efforts on Monday by opening a ‘Community Support Care line’.
Aimed at helping the elderly and vulnerable within our local community, the phone line took calls and Club staff would like to thank those who made contact.
However, due to the recent announcement from the Government all Club staff are now working from home. Meaning therefore that the Club office and its phone lines are now closed for the foreseeable future.
The Football Club continue to liaise with the local authority who are coordinating Bromley’s volunteer response in order to make our facilities available where and if required.
