We are now at the end of the ’12 Days of Christmas’ series of stories focusing on how Wolves Foundation and Wolves, along with several different partners and other charities, tried to spread some Christmas cheer in the local community during these difficult times.
This was only made possible thanks to the support of so many other groups and organisations from the city, for which the Foundation are hugely appreciative.
With the help of Wolves Women including manager Dan McNamara, Young Wolves, Cadbury, Levy’s, Energy Angels, Wolverhampton Ladies Rugby team and a group of hairdressing and beauty students from South Staffordshire College in Tamworth, Punjabi Wolves and the Sikh Toy Appeal, the Foundation were able to help facilitate hundreds of deliveries to homes and charities within the community.
This variety of deliveries included food parcels, sweet treats, letters and toys and covered people of all ages, with charities to benefit including the Good Shepherd, Women and Families Resource Centre and the Haven, as well as members of the Foundation’s Molineux Memories and Wolves Elders groups.
There were also features around some of our participants, including at Stowlawn and Coppice Schools, and highlighting the story of Jonathan Spilsbury, the first player ever to represent Wolves Disability FC at all ages.
The Foundation would also like to thank all those who help share our stories and promote the charity’s activities, including the media team and staff at Wolves, the Express & Star and the group of Foundation ambassadors.
And last but by no means least, the Foundation staff, who have continued to work through the pandemic to adapt and support the local community however possible in line with the changing regulations.
Thank you to all the Wolves fans and charities and agencies who continue to support and work with the Foundation across our projects, as we look forward to once more delivering our activities aimed at creating opportunities and changing lives during 2021.
Happy New Year!
