2018/19 Wolves Project Raises Over £35,000

An incredible £35,000 has been raised for good causes by Sports Personalities in partnership with Wolverhampton Wanderers across the 2018/19 Premier League season. Four eBay auctions of Louise Cobbold’s original works of art, that first featured on Wolves programme covers, together with a Raul Jimenez-themed raffle, raised over £34,000 that will be shared between Cure Leukaemia, Good Shepherd Ministry Wolverhampton, Race Against Blood Cancer and YMCA Black Country. A further £950 was also raised for Wolves Foundation on their dedicated fixture day against Brighton through the auction of Louise’s original painting of Wolves legend Billy Wright.

That’s over £50,000 that has been raised for some fantastic charities (with FoundationDB also in that list) since we launched in March 2018. None of this would have been possible without the generosity and encouragement of Wolves fans (who have been brilliant from the start of this journey) and the wider football community, the support of photographers who captured the original moments, the administrative backing of Joe White at Cure Leukaemia, the creative input of Jamie McGee at ADI TV or the behind the scenes efforts of Max Fitzgerald and Mark Ridgway at Wolves (who we are also really grateful to for the opportunity to provide the programme cover art this season).

Thank you all (& others who we will thank personally) sincerely. We hope you have a fantastic summer!
