Wolves Disabled Supporters Association (DSA), in partnership with Wolves, organised a special event on Saturday 13th April 2013, prior to the home fixture versus Huddersfield.
It was held in support of Level Playing Field’s (LPF) weeks of action, the campaign run by the respected and long-established charity, which promotes good access for all fans .
All Wolves’ registered disabled supporters were invited to attend.
Wolves’ Vice-President and Wolves’ DSA Honorary President, Baroness Rachel Heyhoe Flint OBE and Wolves’ legend, Matt Murray, were in attendance in the North Bank Bar, Stan Cullis Stand. Some 35 -45 disabled supporters, their families and helpers were provided with a free programme and free drink, courtesy of Wolves.
They had the opportunity to socialise and ask questions of the guests, DSA members and generally meet with fellow supporters. They were informed of the DSA ethos, the plans for a DSA website, Facebook and Twitter accounts, forthcoming meetings, how to become DSA members and how LPF were the catalyst in the formation of Wolves DSA.
The feedback from supporters was excellent and has moved Wolves DSA forward as a vehicle for disabled supporters’ to voice their opinions and suggestions to Wolves in a co-ordinated and co-operative way.
Dennis Green, Wolves DSA Secretary, said, “The LPF weeks of action are a fantastic opportunity for football clubs and disabled supporters to highlight the positive work they do together to improve access for all fans.
“Our DSA has been a great success so far and this has been down to the hard work and great relationship between the fans, LPF and the Club.”
