Wolves Aid on its way to £1million donations milestone
Wolves Aid - the community donations arm of Wolves Community Trust - is now approaching the £1 million in donations milestone, made to charities and community groups since 2008.
Wolves Aid has established itself as the biggest charity of its type in football aid and has now helped 93 charities and community groups within Wolverhampton and the surrounding area.
Wolves Aid focusses on the young, disadvantaged and those affected by disabilities. Applications are reviewed by Wolves Community Trust Trustees.
The Trustees visit each charity before making an award and Wolves Community Trust also offers advice and creates links between their supported charities.
An annual 'Funding Awareness Event' has been held at Molineux for the past few years to make local charities aware of Wolves Aid and to improve networking amongst local groups.
Jez Moxey, Chief Executive, Wolves and Wolves Community Trust Trustee, said
"Nearly £1,000,000 donated to 93 organisations is a great achievement and has made such a big difference to the supported local charities and community groups.
"There is so much excellent work being undertaken in the local community, by so many people - and on many occasions by volunteers. I'd encourage fans to read through the awards list, and I'm sure there will be many charities they recognise.
"Wolves Aid and Wolves Community Trust is a great source of pride for everyone connected with the Club and we'd ask supporters to spread the word about the charity within their local communities and beyond."
