Foundation fixture a huge success

Wolves Foundation would like to thank everyone who helped the charity promote their annual Focus Fixture against Everton yesterday.

With games currently taking place behind closed doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the normal array of activities to shine a light on the Foundation were unfortunately absent, but there were still plenty of opportunities to promote the charity’s work.

Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo wore a Foundation pin badge, the players warmed up in Foundation t-shirts with the name of one of the charity’s project participants on the back, and the Foundation logo was added to the front of the Wolves’ playing shirts.

Recently appointed Foundation ambassador Jacqui Oatley was part of the club’s pre-match coverage on the Matchday Live service, and the charity was also prominent on the LED’s at Molineux and on the front cover of the match programme.


“Even though we were unable to enjoy everything normally associated with what is always such a fantastic day for our Focus Fixture, we were still able to take advantage of a really good opportunity to showcase our work,” says Demi Grundy, the Foundation’s fundraising and events executive.

“We just want to thank everyone at the club for all of their support in promoting our activities, and the supporters and participants who shared all the images and mentions of the Foundation across social media.

“All of the coverage from the day continues to help spread the message and raise awareness of the Foundation, and hopefully reach out to even more people who might be able to access one of our projects.”

The Foundation would also like to thank club partners DIS Graphics, who printed the warm-up shirts.

With the normal fundraising bucket collection obviously also unable to take place, there are also two opportunities for fans to support the Foundation with a donation if they are able to.

Supporters can donate via a new button on the Foundation’s website, or keep an eye out for some of the home shirts which are going to be auctioned off on the Foundation’s eBay site.
