Compton to Compton to show they care
Wolves Women and Girls have completed their enormous virtual challenge to raise funds for palliative care in the city.
The women’s first team, development group and youth sides from under-10s to under-16s between them travelled the distance from Compton, Wolverhampton to Compton, California.
And in finishing the 5,331-mile challenge, they have raised £4,442 for Compton Care.
The distance was achieved via running, cycling, rowing or walking, and Wolves Women boss Dan McNamara said: “From the minute we discussed the challenge, the girls have been fantastic.
“Every player from the under-10s to the senior team have all contributed and not only has it allowed us to support a first-class charity within our local community, it has also brought us together as a group during these strange and uncertain times.
“I am really proud of the whole women and girls section for their achievements on and off the field this season. They are a credit to themselves, their families and the club and I look forward to returning to Compton when it is safe to do so.”
Kate Kelly, community events manager at Compton Care, added: “Well done to the entire Wolves Women and Girls team and management who have completed their challenge in aid of Compton Care.
“The team have done a fantastic job running, rowing, cycling 5,331 miles collectively, and the money they have raised is truly incredible.”
