Fit Fans are joined by special guest for mental health catch up

Last year, the Community Trust helped a group of men, who had never met, to get in shape and be more active in their day-to-day lives. Twelve months on, they all still stay in touch, motivating each other to keep right on.

The Community Trust decided to get them all together for a Team Talk; a chat about how the fitness programme has affected their mental health during a tough period for all, and to discuss their methods of coping with COVID.

It wasn’t just the Fit Fans sharing their stories though – George Friend was on the call to talk about how life has changed for professional athletes in 2020, how he has handled ups and downs in his career, and how he manages stressful times on and off the pitch.

The Community Trust is hosting virtual training sessions for youngsters, and plans are in place to extend the Team Talk activity and launch a new cohort of Fit Fans when regulations allow. Make sure you follow @BCFC_Community on Twitter to stay up to date.
