Embrace the festive joy as Emma – The Sleep Company and Burnley FC team up to spread Christmas magic with a toy donation

  • Emma Sleep and Burnley FC join forces with two local charities this Christmas to bring joy to local children
  •  On the day of Burnley’s home game on December 16, the Emma Winter Dreamland will be open for fans to donate toys

December 13th, 2023: This festive season, Burnley FC and its official Sleep Partner, Emma – The Sleep Company, will join forces to spread joy among children facing challenges, through a special toy donation ahead of the game between Burnley FC and Everton FC.

With some children in the local community having their festive fun impacted by the cost of living crisis, Emma and Burnley FC hope to encourage the residents of Burnley to play their part in evoking a little Christmas magic this December.

Fans attending the match against Everton FC at Turf Moor on 16 December, are encouraged to bring toys to donate to the Emma Winter Dreamland which will be open on match day. This magical space, which will be open between 3pm and 5.30pm near the Fan Zone, features a dome full of festive cheer.

In the following weeks, Burnley players and the Club will then deliver these gifts to the community creating magical moments and bringing smiles to the faces of children who may need some extra festive cheer this year.

Felix Monnot, Country Manager, Emma Sleep UK said: “The season of Christmas is the most magical time of the year, but we’re aware that this year might be more difficult than ever for some families across the town. That’s where the Emma Winter Dreamland comes in. We’re hoping we can help Burnley fans and residents spread joy across the community; everyone deserves to experience the beauty of Christmas.”

Burnley FC in the Community and Burnley Together, known for their commitment to uplifting the local community, stand firmly behind this cause. Burnley FC in the Community’s CEO, Helen Gurman added: “We are very excited to be working with Emma – The Sleep Company and Burnley Together to help spread holiday cheer throughout the wider Burnley Community. Burnley Football Club and Burnley FC in the Community are concerned with the welfare of the entire Burnley community and are committed to finding new ways to give to those in need. Their unwavering support ensures that the toy drive reaches as many children as possible, making a lasting impact on families during the holiday season.”
