A Letter to Trust Members

Dear Cards Trust member

Could I take 2 minutes of your time to ask for your help?

It’s been a fantastic season on the pitch – finishing in the Play- Offs for the first time and hopes are high for the future. Behind the scenes things are also moving ahead confidently with ‘Cardinals in the Community’ (CITC), the charity that emerged from ‘Woking FC in the Community’, looking ahead with confidence.

CITC is already working with thousands across the community every month in schools, clubs and projects. The needs are greater than ever but the opportunities are there to work with many more, particularly those facing significant needs. We particularly focus on youth and families but also those struggling with their mental health, dementia sufferers and the elderly.

I know that Woking fans are very generous and many of us give to charity. In that vein we are looking for 100 people who would be in a position to give just £10 a month or more to help us embrace these new openings. Thi s would raise at least £15,000 each year and enable us to do things which otherwise will never happen.

Many people just doing their bit can make a huge difference – would you please be one of the first hundred?

Simply click here or use the QR code and the process is simple

Many thanks

Club Chaplain and Chair, Cardinals in the Community

The Cards at Christmas

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.
