Owls welcome charity partners

23 August 2013


Sheffield Wednesday are pleased to announce that the club will host a charity partner at every home fixture throughout 2013/14.

A different charitable cause will be in the spotlight each matchday in a bid to raise both funds and awareness for their organisation.

As official charity partners they will receive:
- Website story introducing them as charity partner
- Article promoting their organisation/events in matchday programme
- Feature on official teamsheet
- Mention in matchday script and on scoreboard
- Bucket collection at Hillsborough prior to kick-off

Sheffield Wednesday wish to welcome Anthony Nolan as charity partners for the Millwall match.

The blood cancer charity manages the UK bone marrow register helping match donors to patients in need of lifesaving transplants. 

Staff at Anthony Nolan are currently supporting South Yorkshire resident Daniel Moxen, 23, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2009 and soon after received a bone marrow transplant.

After a relapse, doctors told him there was nothing more they can do for him but he refuses to give up and hopes to travel to the USA for treatment.

His auntie, Melaine Torley said: “Daniel was lucky enough to have two matches available but we know not everyone is in that position, so we hope his story will help raise awareness of the need for more bone marrow donations.” 

Volunteers from the charity will hold a bucket collection around the ground before kick-off and both SWFC and Anthony Nolan would like to thank everyone in advance for their generosity.
