Warrington Wolves Foundation celebrated our 18th birthday in style on Saturday 13th May with a fantastic Gala Dinner.
Featuring performances from many of our inclusion volunteers, our audience of Business Patrons and friends of the Foundation were treated to an evening of entertainment including a flash-mob from the Wolfprint Group, our disability dance group for children and young adults.
They also heard from three of our Managers. Disability Manager, Andrew Brady, spoke about how his inclusion team changes lives through their disability sports and arts project. Next to the stage was James Howes, Health & Well-being Manager, who quite literally changes, and in some cases saves lives through the Offload programme, with over 700 men accessing it's talking support group in Warrington since it was founded in 2018. Then finally they also heard from our Rugby League Manager, Lee Mitchell, on how hard his team work to change lives through sport, its not all producing players for the first team.
We celebrated our inclusion volunteers with a wonderful rendition from Keith 'Elvis Presley' Naylor (pictured), and gave thanks to our Trustees past and present, including a Trustee Emeritus award for Reverend Stephen Kingsnorth, presented by our Chair of Trustees, Peter Astley MBE. Quite simply, it was a wonderful evening.
