With a limited number of places remaining, the deadline to sign up for this year’s Molineux Sleepout has been extended to Monday 8th November.
Supporters wishing to take on the challenge of spending the night of Friday 12th November into the Saturday sleeping in the Stan Cullis Stand can still book their place and, in doing so, help the homeless and vulnerable from the local community.
All the proceeds from the sleepout both in ticket money and sponsorship will be shared between projects run by Wolves Foundation and the Good Shepherd.
Wolves captain and Foundation ambassador Conor Coady is a big fan of the event and the impact it has on the people of the city.
“The Molineux Sleepout is such a fantastic way to support the community and raise vital funds to tackle homelessness and food poverty,” said Coady.
“I was happy to take part in the virtual event last year during lockdown, and to see some of the work the Good Shepherd do in Wolverhampton was really humbling. It’s such a worthy cause.
“As an ambassador for the Wolves Foundation, I also know the brilliant impact Feed Our Pack is already having, and the funds raised through the sleepout can only help that and other similar projects go from strength to strength.”
The first ever Molineux two sleepout, two years ago, raised an incredible £50,000 to be shared between the charities and, when Covid regulations meant the event had to go ‘virtual’ last year, another £13,000 was raised.
Now though the event can return to Molineux and Foundation ambassadors Karl Henry, Johnny Phillips and Jack Rutter have already pledged to attend.
There was a fantastic community spirit on show at the first event back in 2019 with people coming together to take on the challenge but also raising valuable funds to make such a positive impact on those needing help across the city.
