Premier League Kicks Donate Trainers to Good Shepherd

Wolves Foundation and Premier League Kicks participants have donated over 170 pairs of mixed sized trainers to Good Shepherd.

Trainers were collected from Molineux Stadium, Wolves Foundation sessions and Wolves Fan Park at the recent Newcastle and Liverpool home fixtures.

The appeal initiative came from Young Kicks volunteer and participant Spencer Palmer, in a bid to collect 200 pairs of old or unwanted trainers, in support of those homeless and living vulnerable. 

Spencer Palmer, who led on the social action project, commented: “Me and some of the other participants, came up with the idea to donate some trainers to the homeless and it’s really good to give back something to the community.”

Luke Shearing, Premier League Kicks Inclusion and Cohesion Officer, added: “Obviously homelessness is a big issue in wolverhampton, so it’s really great that Spencer and some of the other guys came up to us with this idea, that we could go and collect trainers from all the fans in wolves. So, credit to him for coming up with this and he’s really leading on the scheme for us.”

Several Wolves fans have now learned more about the activities and support of the Good Shepherd by dropping off their trainers during matches.
