Have you bought your virtual ticket for the Liverpool game yet? To support Wolves Foundation’s Feed Our Pack initiative?
If you do, then you will become part of a hugely important campaign to ensure we support the most vulnerable people within our community who have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
After Feed Our Pack was launched thanks to investment from both the Premier League and PFA Community Fund, and our very own head coach Nuno Espirito Santo, we have already started putting the campaign into action.
We have already had many people donating on the Just Giving page or via our annual direct debit scheme, or by purchasing a virtual ticket for the Liverpool game, and have added almost £40,000 to the available funds.
We need to continue to do this so that we can ensure we support everyone who needs our help, whether by donating more food to local foodbanks, or via our Holiday Hunger activities and deliveries of food parcels.
Just last week, our captain and Wolves Foundation ambassador Conor Coady and several Academy Under-18 players supported our distribution of food parcels to local children who had been identified by their schools as being in need over the February half term holidays. BBC’s Match of the Day programme came along to film and their piece was shown on the repeat show on Sunday morning.
That number of parcels effectively amounts to 1,500 meals served to support our local community, and when it comes to Easter, we are aiming to double that output and deliver 500 food parcels, the equivalent of 3,000 meals.
We have already enjoyed some great additional support from individual fans getting involved in our fundraising, including our Wolves Disability player Darren aiming to cycle 250 miles during February, and volunteer Manny raising money from some fantastic Wolves-related prizes.
The Wolfpack Howlers band also did a special live performance streamed across Facebook at Millennium Point in Birmingham following the FA Cup tie with Southampton.
So many people are helping us to help others, just when they really need it, and the Wolves Foundation’s Feed Our Pack campaign can only be successful with all of the Wolves Pack behind us.
Please consider becoming a part of this initiative, and also a part of the first ever Wolves fixture selling virtual tickets, by purchasing a virtual seat for the fixture against reigning Premier League champions Liverpool on Monday, March 15th.
You will receive an email back confirming your virtual ticket and thanking you for your support, but, perhaps most importantly, you will have made a really positive impact on the vulnerable within our local communities.
Tickets cost £20, with every penny going to Feed Our Pack – click here to view more details and make your purchase.
Together we are stronger. Don’t forget to follow @wwfcfoundation for regular updates.
