Wolves supporters raise over £63,000 for good causes

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC have been supporting the work of Tettenhall Rotary Club for 25 years now - allowing members of the Club and the charities that we work with to collect around the Molineux Stadium in each of those 25 years.

Former Wolves vice-president and England cricketer Rachael Heyhoe Flint was instrumental in establishing the pre-match collections and to recognise her contribution the annual collection days is now known as Rachael's Day.

Over the years Wolves supporters have donated £63,038 to the good causes that we work with - the latest collection raising £2,823 for Power Pleas which with gift aid will rise to over £3,500.

We're tremendously grateful to Wolves and to all of the Club's supporters who continue to help us help others.

Support for KIngswood Trust

The generous support which you have given to our Santa Sleigh this year has meant that the Club can continue to help local charities such as the Kingswood Trust.

For nearly 100 years the Kingswood site has given children from Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of learning with nature. Originally established in 1923 as a holiday camp for poor children the site was acquired by the education authority after World War II to become an open air school for delicate children – many suffering from breathing problems and poor nourishment. With the improvement in the health of children in the early 1970’s the site’s focus shifted and it become an environmental residential centre for schools to learn in the great outdoors. Now an independent charity Kingswood Trust continues to provide outdoor education activities connecting children and the community to the natural world.

Support for Acorns Hospice

Since it was established in 1988, Acorns Children's Hospice has provided care for life limited and life threatened babies, children and young people and their families, across the Midlands.

The hospices are purpose built with ten specially decorated bedrooms designed to cater for children and young people from birth to 18 years of age. They are designed to be a home-from-home environment to help children enjoy their stay and make the most of every day

The charity is currently helping over 200 children and over 280 families across the Black Country but relies on the community to fund the majority of its activities.

Thanks to your generous support for the Tettenhall Rotary Santa Sleigh we've been able to make a donation to help the ongoing work of the Hospice.

You can help the Hospice by making further donations here -  https://www.acorns.org.uk/donate/
