CHRISTMAS CAKE FUNDRAISER


U11 BAC member Francesca Farnworth has been busy fundraising again.  This time she asked

her Grandma Jones to bake a Christmas cake and arranged for their friend Liz to raffle off the cake in the Burnley Hospital shop.  Francesca raised £91 for BAC which will go towards new equipment and repairs

to our facility.  Both the Committee and all BAC’s members are very grateful and proud of Francesca

and her efforts to help raise much needed funds , a BIG well done goes to Francesca!!


If any Members have any fundraising ideas, please approach a member of the Committee and we will

do our very best  to put them into practise and raise the money needed to improve YOUR CLUB.

A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER STEVE BATESON


of Runningpix was at Hyndburn on 16th January and took some lovely photographs.  Unfortunately

at the moment the Mid Lancs League website is not accessible for updating with photos of that event and

some of our members, particularly younger ones and their parents, may be interested in looking at Steve's photographs. Can you please let your members who ran at Hyndburn know that these photos are to be

found by clicking this Runningpix link.  Copies of the photo’s can be ordered from his website.

ABOUT THE CLUB

We are a long established club going back many years with an old cinder track. This was upgraded in 1998 to the present synthetic track through various joint funding's with Burnley Boys Club, Burnley United FC, Burnley Athletic Club and Burnley Borough Council.

An upgrade of the Hammer/Discus cage in 2011 now allows us to host National competitions, this again was awarded to us through various funding's.

The Clubs Coaches and Officials are all UKA qualified and hold current DBS certificates, as volunteers they each give up their spare time free of charge to run the Club so that all Membership and Track Fees go toward the upkeep of the Club and the Affiliations to the various Leagues the Club competes in.  Transport to and from meetings can be arranged through volunteer drivers, the Club does not cover costs of entries and transport to Open competitions, League Medal meetings or Championship meetings. The Track and Field season runs from March to September and the Cross Country season runs from October to March so there is always something to do.

We are members of, and compete in various leagues:

MID LANCS TRACK & FIELD AND CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE

NORTHERN SENIOR TRACK & FIELD LEAGUE - NORTHERN MASTERS TRACK & FIELD LEAGUE

RED ROSE CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE

At the end of the Track & Field season we hold a presentation evening, this is when our Athletes are rewarded for their hard work over the past Cross Country & Track & Field season, Certificates and Trophies are awarded. This is a good time for all the Athletes, Parents, Families and friends to get together for an enjoyable social evening.
