Young Owl shines in Children’s Hospital Charity fundraiser!

7 November 2016


Sheffield Wednesday welcomed a special guest to Hillsborough on Saturday.

Seven-year-old Olly – who is a big Owls fan and Season Ticket holder - has raised £512 for the Children’s Hospital Charity after a very busy summer!

The youngster set himself the task of locating each and every one of the herd of elephants that descended on Sheffield in July.

The arrival of 58 elephants across the city symbolised the biggest public display of art Sheffield had ever seen, with each sculptured and uniquely decorated by artists – 75% of which from Sheffield.

Olly’s aim was to find each one, have a picture and to raise £58 - £1 for each elephant.

But the young Wednesdayite surpassed all expectations and collected a remarkable £512 through sponsorships for the Children’s Hospital!

Ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Ipswich, Olly – who attends Aughton Primary School - was invited to the club before the game to meet his favourite players.



While at Hillsborough, he also presented Sam Hutchinson with his swfc.co.uk October Player of the Month award.

Well done Olly, fantastic work!
