Bolton Wanderers have donated £12,800 to Blesma, the limbless veterans charity who have been an official partner of the club throughout 2014/15.

Blesma help all serving and ex-Service men and women who have lost limbs, or the use of limbs or eyes, to rebuild their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support.

Last November, Wanderers raised £10,000 for the charity through sales of their limited edition third shirt, and their latest donation comes through the efforts of the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust - an independent registered charity which is affiliated and supported by the club itself.

Club chaplain Phil Mason and BWCT worker Tony Kelly, himself a former Wanderers player, were present at the Blesma Garden Party in Blackpool on Thursday, where they presented a cheque and signed football.

The garden party is one of a series of events to have taken place in recent days, as part of Blesma week. Fundraising activities such as a 'bake off' and pudding festival have encouraged local businesses to donate to their cause.
