Wolves have confirmed that they will be producing a video memorial service for supporters wishing to remember loved ones as a replacement for this season’s fans memorial service.
The annual fans memorial service held at St Peters Collegiate Church has been an important event in supporters’ calendars over a number of years. The service, hosted by Reverend David Wright, enables supporters to submit the name of a loved one that they wished to be remembered which would then be read out as part of the service.
The 2019/20 service was pencilled in for today’s date to coincide with the Everton fixture at Molineux, and current Covid-19 pandemic means that it is not possible to hold the service.
Supporter liaison officer Dave Wood said: “During these times, we feel it is more important than ever for supporters to be given the opportunity to remember loved ones with whom they shared special Wolves memories with.
“Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, we are unable to hold the service at St Peter’s as planned, however we still want to make sure we continue this important tradition one way or another.
“Therefore, we have decided to give all supporters the opportunity to submit a name and a photo of supporters they wish to remember, which will form part of a video memorial service that will be available on our platforms in May.”
Supporters can submit a name and a photo of a supporter they wish to remember to firstname.lastname@example.org – we ask for high resolution images with the supporter that is being remembered on their own and wearing Wolves colours wherever possible.
An order of service listing names of supporters being remembered will also be available to download to accompany the video service. The deadline for submissions is Saturday 2nd May with the service set to be made available on Saturday 9th May.
