Cure Leukaemia Smash Target

Cure Leukaemia have announced 2017 as their most successful fundraising year yet, with Wolves supporters playing a key role.

Carl Ikeme was sadly diagnosed with acute leukaemia in July, which sparked Wolves supporters to give generously to the charity in support of the goalkeeper.

More than £2 million was raised for the first time and helps fund the expansion of the Centre for Clinical Haematology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

The charity’s aim was to raise an additional £1 million on their 2016 total and it was easily achieved, with Wolves supporters contributing an impressive 10 percent.

Managing Director Laurie Dalrymple said: “We are tremendously proud of our supporters, who have given so generously to Cure Leukaemia this season in support of Carl.

“As a club, and as a family, we were rocked by Carl’s sudden and shocking news, but I’m sure he’ll be touched by the donations made by everyone with a Wolves connection.

“As always, our full support is with Carl and his battle, and as a pack our supporters show their support for him at every game with a giant crowd surfing flag which bears his image and the slogan #TeamKemes.

“We hope the support from our fans, both financial and emotional, can help Carl and Cure Leukaemia fight this disease.”
