Community support care-line reopens

Following on from our initial efforts during the first National Lockdown to support our fan base and local community (click here to read more>) the Club are renewing our efforts to support our fan base and the local community.

Aimed at helping the vulnerable within our local community, we are re-launching our ‘Community support care-line’, which takes calls for those who need help with Shopping or retrieving essentials, need some advice, or just a friendly voice to chat to!

Supporters can contact us on 0208 460 5291. The phone line is open from Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. Alternatively, if you know of someone who would benefit from a call from us, email info@bromleyfc.co.uk

We understand that a number of our supporters may need us during these times. We feel it is only right to provide this to our loyal fanbase, and will again be contacting our older supporters throughout Lockdown to offer any support we can including delivery of food.

We are also looking to offer our support to local food banks, and as well as making our own donations, we will be happy to arrange collection of fellow supporters’ donations to deliver directly to the food banks, who continue to provide an amazing service in these tough times.

Just as the team does when the chips are down, we need to stick together during this tough period. All of us, from supporters, to players and staff, are what makes our Bromley Football Club family.
