Annual Memorial Service

PUBLISHED

08:00 20th March 2014

Chance to remember Wolves supporters

Wolves have been working with Club Chaplain - Rev. David Wright - to arrange this year’s memorial service to remember supporters who are no longer with us.

 

The service will be held at St. Peter's Collegiate Church in Wolverhampton on Saturday 5th April 2014 at 12:30pm - ahead of Wolves' home fixture versus Peterborough United (Kick off 3pm).

 

The service will be open to all supporters and fans are being encouraged to wear club colours.

 

A number of Club representatives will be in attendance.

 

The Memorial Service was originally introduced in response to hundreds of requests for a pre-match minutes silence or to have fans' ashes scattered at Molineux, which are now not often possible.

 

This is an alternative way for the club and fans to respect and celebrate the lives of members of the 'Wolves family' who are no longer with us and this year includes great former players as Bert Williams, Peter Broadbent, Barry Stobart and Dave Wagstaffe, all of whom have left us this season.  

 

A straightforward service will be held whereby loved ones can be remembered individually by name or as a group.

 

Supporters are requested to email names into the Club of loved ones they wish to remember during the service, and will be printed out and handed out on the day - however the service will be open to all. Club Chaplain, Rev. David Wright, said: "This service will give fans the opportunity to remember family and loved ones who have touched their lives, and perhaps with whom they have supported Wolves over the years.

 

"As we give thanks for the past, we can also value the present and look with hope to the future."

 

Fans are requested to send in the names of people to be remembered to : fans@wolves.co.uk  by 5pm on Thursday, April 3rd.
