Thanks to Sheffield Wednesday’s commitment to charitable causes ten local charities have been profiled on matchday helping raise hundreds of pounds for the organisations.
The club have a designated charity for each home game and the club shows their commitment to good causes by providing special partnerships throughout the season.
Charity partners this season have included; The Royal British Legion, Sheffield Futures, The Eden Dora Trust and The Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity.
On matchday, the charity partner for the game is given space in the club’s programme, a message on the scoreboard, a special announcement by the presenter and select organisations receive bucket collections before the game and during half time.
Thanks to the club, over the season, 23 charities will benefit from the matchday partnership, with hundreds more pounds expected to be raised through bucket collections.
The club aims to be as accommodating as possible by giving the charity great exposure. This not only means the organisation can raise funds but also increase awareness of what they do.
Sheffield Wednesday would like to thank Owls fans for their continued generosity to the charity’s bucket collections and their support on matchday.
