Woking FC supporters and players have been pulling out all the stops for many years at Christmas to help hundreds of people facing challenges in the community.
It began with taking presents to children at our two main hospitals (as well as much needed equipment for the children’s wards). More recently we have provided hampers for the elderly and those isolated at home. Last year was the biggest effort yet in that, in addition to the hospitals, we helped deliver meals and presents to families going through a particularly tough time; there were cheers – but also tears – on the doorsteps!
This year we want to go beyond this and already have lined up food deliveries and hospital visits. Every pound (with very modest Go Fund Me deductions) will go 100% to the cause and the great news is that this year we are operating through Cardinals in the Community, the charity associated with Woking FC. This means if you are a UK taxpayer, 20% will be added to every donation you make.
To donate, go here.
The players will be contributing, the fans will be pitching in and at least two local pubs (thanks as ever to the Olive Tree, Sutton Green and The Dog and Pheasant, Brook) will be giving generously to the cause. We will have a Christmas bucket collection on 11th December at our game v Boreham Wood.
Our initial target is £1500, but, to be honest, we want to smash that. Please give as generously as you are able and get the word out.We will keep you posted as plans develop.
Let’s help make a wonderful Christmas 2021 for those who are going through tough times.
