Bury FC in the Community† S.T.E.P.S. Holiday† Play schemes have been supported by ASDA Bury this year, by providing healthy breakfasts and afternoon snacks, for the children during the holiday periods.

Play development Officer Linda Dawson believes the partnership with ASDA Bury , will be off great benefit too the children as some children may not get that chance to have a good breakfast, before coming along to the holiday Play schemes due to the working lifestyles of parents these days! A huge thank you to ASDA Market side Bury and especially extra thanks to Debbie for providing the healthy food.
