A Blue and White Christmas!

7 December 2016


What a day!!

Following on from the successes of #BlueandWhiteChristmasDay last year, the Owls spread their wings once again on Wednesday as part of a unique Yultide occasion.

This time around, in the biggest designated day of its kind in the club’s history, the players, staff, head coach and chairman went further afield visiting no fewer than five local charities.

The day began with a visit to the Sheffield Royal Society of the Blind, where the staff gave a fantastic insight to the superb work behind the scenes and the services they provide to the blind and partially sighted in Sheffield.





From visiting Sheffield’s oldest independent local charity, SRSB, the club then continued the special day into the afternoon.

The SWFC contingent, including Owls chairman Dejphon Chansiri and head coach Carlos Carvalhal visited Weston Park Hospital and the Sheffield Children’s hospital to spread further festive cheer!





Separated into groups, the Owls also made the short hop over to Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids to see some of the wonderful work that ensures 1000s of disadvantaged children across South Yorkshire enjoy the best Christmas possible.





Lee Bullen and co. too had a heart-warming afternoon at Bluebell Wood Children’s hospice.

The hospice cares for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions and currently supports around 250 families, both in their own homes and at the North Anston hospice.



Wednesday supporters and the people of Sheffield have followed the club’s progress across the devoted day on social media, using #BlueandWhiteChristmasDay hashtag.

Sheffield Wednesday would like to thank SRSB, Weston Park, Sheffield Children’s, Hallam FM’s Cash For Kids and Bluebell Wood along with all the patients and families we’ve met today!
