This week, the club is celebrating National Volunteers' Week and would like to say a huge thank you to all of the volunteers associated with the club. 

Volunteers' Week is celebrated across the country and is a chance to say thank you for the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK. 

There are approximately 25 volunteers who operate within the club, the Bradford City FC Community Foundation and within the Bradford City Disability FC provision. 

The Community Foundation's Volunteer and Education Programme - sponsored by BIST - is an opportunity for disabled adults and juniors to be involved with the club by volunteering on match days and helping to support other disabled fans.

They are also involved in a number of activities working within the wider community groups that surround Bradford City AFC - such as supporting charity fundraising, events and raising awareness of the benefits of disability sport and being active within the local community.

Their day to day roles at the Northern Commercials Stadium include maintenance work, cleaning and matchday roles. 

Keith Petty, Managing Director of BIST, added: "I am extremely proud to support Bradford City Disability FC in all their various activities, especially the Volunteer and Education Programme.

"I would like to join in on this week's celebrations and say a massive thank you to all of the volunteers, who do an enormous amount of work behind the scenes and don’t always get the recognition they deserve, the club couldn’t do without them."

In December 2018, the club created this video with Bradford City's Disability Liaison Officer, Jaimie Dorward, which explains the Volunteer and Education Programme. Watch the full video below:
