|Blackpool FC's army of volunteers ready for action again say BST 07:24 - Mar 26 with 22 views||BringBackTheRedRoom|
Blackpool’s leading fans’ group has pledged to help the football club in any way possible when it’s back up and running after the coronavirus pandemic.
A number of those helpers again offered to muck in and help tidy the Squires Gate training ground.
BST chair Christine Seddon is acutely aware those volunteers will be required once again as and when English football returns.
On what the Trust can do in such uncertain times, Seddon told The Gazette: “We are offering assistance to Blackpool FC’s Community Trust, so we are seeing how we can help there.
“We are also doing stuff with the veterans and we’ve always done the food bank collection.
“The problem we’ve got now is that when you’re in lockdown you can’t be asking people to come out of their homes, so we’re a little bit limited at the moment in what we can do.
“There are going to be an awful lot of people who find it a really tough time, so when we do get back to normal I’m sure there will be lots of people in need out there. As a Trust we will look to see how we can help.
“The BST volunteers who started the famous seat-cleaning are still committed to helping our club and we’re well aware there will be things that need doing in future.
“For (Blackpool owner) Simon Sadler, what a time to buy a football club! He’s already invested all this money to buy the club and more money because it had gotten into such a state. Now he’s got all this as well, and he’s having to keep everybody and everything going.
“I do hope people will bear that in mind and give a little back if they possibly can, whether that be in volunteering and helping to do things as and when required.
“All the seats will need cleaning when we finally get going again. Anything people can do to help will make a difference.”
