A recap of the Community Foundation's Easter!

Throughout the week leading up to Easter, AFC Fylde Community Foundation hosted several different events and activities.

On Tuesday 26th March, our 'Extra Time' session in Lytham St Anne's had a Jacob's Join. There was a great turnout to the session with every single person, including members of staff contributing to the spread.

There was homemade cheese and onion pies, a massive selection of different types of sandwiches, chicken drumsticks, sausage rolls and fresh pasta salad.

Then for dessert, we were treated to homemade lemon drizzle cake, banana bread, a banana tart, blueberry muffins, Easter cupcakes, a Victoria sponge and tonnes of biscuits - it's safe to say there was some leftovers.

Before the session ended we had time to fit in a quick game of Easter bingo.

On Wednesday 27th March we invited Age UK to our Kirkham Companions session at Kirkham's Community Centre.

They hosted a scam awareness course for our participants to help them become more aware of what to look for and what to do in the future if they ever believe someone is trying to take advantage of them.

The original plan was to also play Easter bingo but they were enjoying the talk that much that they asked for it carry on a bit longer!

Then as you're probably very aware, the Foundation hosted an evening of Easter bingo at Bradley's Sports Bar on Thursday 28th March.

Despite a slight technical issue in the first game, the night was an incredible success. Luke Charman and Owen Evans also made an appearance as they drew the raffle tickets, handed out prizes and took photos with the fans.

Raffle prizes consisted of AFC Fylde tickets, signed shirts from AFC Fylde Women, a club scarf and bottles of wine whilst the bingo winners received Easter eggs.

The Foundation's Assistant Director, Mick Whittle said: "The Easter bingo was a great night and all the money raised from the bingo book sales and the raffle tickets has helped out massively."

The money raised was split between AFC Fylde's supporters group and the Community Foundation - with the idea of putting it towards travel costs for fans and to surprise children who don't usually receive an Easter egg.

Mick said: "It was amazing to get so many fans and families all in one place to kick-off the Easter weekend. I'd like to thank everyone who came to Bradley's and I hope you all had a great time!

"After seeing how successful Thursday night was, we're hoping to host more events like this in the future."
