It’s not just in Wolverhampton and the Black Country where Wolves Foundation’s good work motivates, educates and inspires people to improve their lives.
Head of Foundation Will Clowes, senior manager Laura Nicholls and school sport manager Tom Warren have flown out to China this week alongside Nuno Espirito Santo’s team to expand their creative, innovative and diverse engagement initiatives to Asia.
The trio, who will be carrying out community activities throughout their visit to China, started the week in Nanjing – the city where Wolves will face Newcastle United in the first match of the Premier League Asia Trophy on Wednesday.
On Monday, the foundation staff were co-delivering an event in partnership with the Fosun Foundation at Nanjing’s Maigaoqiao Primary School. The session saw 30 pupils aged between eight and 11 experience how football can develop their education and sporting opportunities.
The teachers and parents from the school also received a presentation from Wolves Foundation and will be guests at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre for the game against Newcastle.
