Wolves Aid, funded by Wolves Chairman Steve Morgan, has reached an exciting milestone in his history of donations to the local community.
Wolves Aid, which forms part of Wolves Community Trust, Wolves FC’s official charity, has given money to over 80 charities and community groups over a the last 4 years.
Wolves Aid, which supports those within the Wolverhampton and the surrounding area, helps to support organisations that work with the disadvantaged, those with disabilities, aids development of children and supports family life.
Wolves Aid follows the same ethos as the Morgan Foundation, Steve Morgan’s own charity. that has donated over £9 million to charities and organisations since it began in 2001. Successful applicants must have a turnover of less than £1 million per year, are heavily supported by volunteers and have been running for over a year.
The Trustees of Wolves Aid which include Chief Executive Jez Moxey, former Wolverhampton College Principal Ian Millard, Wolves’ Club Secretary Richard Skirrow, and Head of Marketing & Communications Matt Grayson, are extremely pro-active with each donation made, with the majority of supported organisations having enjoyed a site visit to showcase their work and the difference they make to the local community.
Will Clowes, General Manager of Wolves Community Trust said: “We are delighted to have reached such a significant milestone of £500,000 of cash donations made to local organisations.
“Wolves Aid is all about helping small local charities and organisations, those that make a real difference to their communities.
“Our donations are quite unique within football, with the Football League Trust previously quoting Wolves as the most generous club within the Football League, something which we are all immensely proud of.”
Wolves Aid is delighted that the donations they have made can go on to make a huge difference to these organisations, which can help put on more varied activities and update their facilities. Keen to help those small ‘grass-root’ charities, Wolves Aid looks forward to continuing to make donations to the users of invaluable services that the community would be lost without.
