Toy Appeal is Festive Success!

Steve has worked closely with our project lead Maz Surti to run the toy appeal throughout December, generating an an incredible amount of support from Steve’s football friends, our Facebook followers and the local community.

We are delighted to announce that we have received 600 gifts all new and wrapped. Our volunteers have been out on the road since Monday delivering some of these gifts. We’ve donated toys to St Gabriel’s Church which will be given to Acorns and distributed gifts to hostels, women’s centres, councils and other community groups.

A huge thank you to Steve, Maz and all those that have supported our appeal, including the many volunteers that have given up their time to make it a special Christmas for many families during these difficult times.

Christmas Meals Update

Rob and his team have raised a whopping £1,134 for our Christmas lunches appeal.

The WSA appeal began three weeks ago on Twitter and passed an initial target of £300 within hours, thanks largely to donations from supporters of Walsall Football Club.

The money raised will be used to provide 40 Christmas meals to the elderly and vulnerable on Christmas day, 80 lunches on Bank Holiday Monday to families in need, 15 lunches for the elderly on Sunday and will cover the cost of our food parcels for an entire week!

What a fantastic gesture from Rob and his group to raise these funds on our behalf. We are truly blown away!
