Wolves Women and Girls: Compton, Wolverhampton to Compton, California

Fundraising Story

Compton Care has played a vital role in the city of Wolverhampton for over 35 years, providing palliative care and supporting hundreds of families at their most difficult times. 

The services they provide include round the clock inpatient care and community care within homes, plus the Compton Living Well Centre and Compton Lymphoedema Centre, which allow patients to take charge of their conditions. 

During these unprecedented times, more than ever, Compton Care needs help to continue to provide their many fantastic services throughout the community.

Right now, the entire Compton team are pulling together to ensure local people with incurable illnesses continue to receive the care and support they so desperately need.

They are also stepping up for our community by opening up more inpatient beds, taking on the work of our local district nursing teams and offering telephone support to healthcare professionals, as well as a telephone befriending service to patients, families and carers, all to free up vital NHS beds and resources so they can focus on fighting Covid19 and saving lives. 

Wolves Women and Girls want to do something to help raise the vitally-needed funds. The senior players, staff, coaches, volunteers and girls at the Regional Talent Centre have decided to come together to take on this massive challenge.

With no football at the moment they’ve been training at home individually. During the virtual challenge throughout May they will be travelling a distance of 5,331 miles from Compton, Wolverhampton – the home of Compton Care and the Wolves training ground – to Compton, California, by either running, cycling, rowing or walking. 

They need your support. Please get behind the club and donate what you can to allow Compton Care to continue to provide first class care across our community. You can follow the players’ progress here.
