EVERY young Blackpool FC fan dreams what it would be like to join their footballing heroes on the pitch at Wembley.

But two lucky youngsters will be given the chance to find out as part of a once in a lifetime charity auction.

Blackpool FC has donated two mascot places at next Saturday’s play-off final to Brian House Hospice. The charity is now selling the places to raise funds.

This means two lucky people will get to join the Seasiders on the pitch prior to kick-off.

The highest bid already stands at £300, but with the auction due to close at 3pm on Monday afternoon, time to register is short.

Jane Molyneux, fundraising manager at the hospice, said: “This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity for your child to lead Blackpool FC on to the Wembley pitch for their play-off final.

“We are thrilled the club has donated their mascot packages for this extra special game to Brian House.

“It’s a fabulous gesture which underlines the club’s ongoing support and we hope it will raise lots of much needed money for the hospice.

“We can’t thank them enough and hope lots of football fans will visit our website and make a bid.”

The two top winning bids will each win the chance to be one of the official Blackpool FC team mascots.

They will meet the team before the game and be part of the day before leading them onto the famous Wembley pitch.

Match tickets for the mascot and one accompanying parent or guardian will also be included as part of the package.
