Bromley offer care in the community
Bromley offer care in the community

Since the suspension of the National League season due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, things have still been busy at Bromley Football Club as they have maintained their place as a vital part of their local community.

The initial response from the club was to offer all the unused food to season ticket holders who fall in the vulnerable group and then to Bromley foodbank. Players and club staff d delivered the packages to people who contacted the club and foodbank warehouses.

Following that a Community Support helpline was set up to offer assistance aimed at helping the elderly and vulnerable in the local community operated by members of the Bromley FC staff.

Sadly the further measures put in place on the evening Monday 23rd meant that it’s operation had been put on hold with all club employees now staying home and the club offices shut. Bromley have continued to be involved with the efforts to help in the current crisis though by offering their facilities to the London Borough of Bromley where required.        

After playing their last game of football on 7th March 2020 away at Harrogate Town, followed by the late postponement of the Chorley home game, Neil Smith and his squad have kept themselves active and in touch with the cub’s fans by posting videos of themselves out running and sending messages of support, while Chairman Robin Stanton-Gleaves sent out a message to supporters.     

The Ravens have kept up their social media presence by posting up memories and action from old games to keep the fire burning and reminding the club’s followers of better times past and hopefully to come in the future.
