Bolton Wanderers in the Community (BWitC) is set to host its annual charity gala dinner next month.

The event is scheduled to take place on Friday, October 20 in the newly refurbished 1877 Suite at the Toughsheet Community Stadium.

Senior Club representatives will also attend the dinner including the chairman Sharon Brittan, manager Ian Evatt and CEO Neil Hart endorsing the work of the charitable arm of the Club.

The charity gala dinner serves as a cornerstone event for raising funds and awareness to support BWitC’s ongoing mission to use the power of Bolton Wanderers Football Club to "inspire, support and deliver positive change".

This year's event promises to be a "remarkable gathering", featuring inspiring guest speakers including a Q&A with first team manager Ian Evatt.

Phil Mason, CEO of BWitC, said: “As a club we recognise the importance of our work in the community as an anchor institution within the town.

“I would firstly like to thank Sharon, Ian and Neil for their continued support in our local community, through our charity we reach over 15,000 people through 30 projects, using the power of Bolton Wanderers to make a real difference.

"We would like to encourage you to attend this evening and hear the stories from those who have transformed their own lives through the work of the charity.

“This is a real opportunity to celebrate what your club is doing in the community and for each and everyone attending to play a significant part in making this work happen and making a difference in our town.

“The charity is self-financing annually raising £1.5m to fund all the projects and programmes."
