People living at Stocks Hall Care Home, Andrew Smith House were amongst the lucky ones recently, to be invited to visit and take part in ‘50,000 steps around Burnley Football Stadium’. Tony Beckett, Norman Beasley and activities worker Julie Williams, all took part in a pitch walk at Turf Moor Football Stadium in Burnley and the 50,000 steps were walked by 25 participants.
Turf Moor is the home ground of Premier League Club, Burnley Football Club, who have played there since moving from Calder Vale ground in 1883. They currently hold 16th position in the Premier League.
Julie said “the invitation followed Andrew Smith House Home’s regular weekly visit to Burnley’s Football Club’s ‘Over 50’s Volunteer Group’. It was a great morning, and totally enjoyed by us all.”
