Health Bus

Arriva Health Bus

THE original MFC Foundation Boro Bus was brought into service to help combat health and education difficulties in areas of deprivation.

It quickly developed into a learning facility that was used throughout the region, often supplementing work done within classrooms.

Requisitioned as a pop-up vaccination centre during the Covid-19 pandemic, it was taken to all areas of Teesside and NHS staff would administer the necessary jabs.

The bus has wide screen TV and stadium seats on board which allows students to take part in lessons whilst on the bus, with sessions delivered aimed at increasing knowledge and understanding of health issues as well as boosting confidence and self-esteem of children involved.

It will in time be phased out, replaced with a new bus which is different in shape and size, but very much with the same purpose.

Thank You For Playing On The Pitch

They came from our communities and local businesses. Each with a personal goal, collectively with a common purpose.

In raising money for Middlesbrough FC Foundation, so many realised an ambition of playing on the Riverside pitch. Whatever the reason, we thank you very much indeed.

Among our communities, were David Mohan, a fundraiser extraordinaire for the foundation, as well as companies AM Recruitment, BHVR Interactive, Clive Owen, Everyone Active, Middlesbrough College, Pearl Safety, Project Escape and Wellington Square.
