Wolves Aid have provided a discretionary donation to help Derek Dougan’s son Alex cope with the effects of a mystery virus which has left him unable to walk and causes problems with his speech.
Alex, 49, picked up the mystery illness while on holiday in Barbados, and has now been left with a condition called encephalitis, making it difficult to communicate with people.
Wolves Aid, the charity arm of Wolves Community Trust, has now stepped in to make a discretionary donation to purchase an iPad and other software to help Alex communicate.
Club Secretary Richard Skirrow is pictured presenting the gift to Alex, who also enjoyed a tour of the Wolves Museum which features many references and photographs of his legendary father Derek.
‘The Doog’ as he is remembered by so many, scored 95 goals in 258 appearances for Wolves, and, since his death in 2007, has been inducted into the Wolves Hall of Fame.
