Wolves | Published:

Wolves Women and Girls have completed their enormous virtual challenge to raise funds for palliative care in the city.

How’s that for a ballpark figure? Wolves Women and Girls have raised a superb £4,422 for Compton Care by completing a 5,331-mile challenge

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.”
