Please note national charities with local branches will not be considered.
All applications must include the following information:
• Brief history of how and why the charity was formed

For the the 2013/14 season Wycombe Wanderers proudly showed their support to their nominated charity of the year, Thames Valley Adventure Playground.
Donations Manager Nicky Hutchinson said "Wycombe Wanderers' support for the Thames Valley Adventure Playground during the past season has been absolutely tremendous and has helped make this a really special year for all those children with special needs, and their families, for whom the Playground is such a lifeline.
"The Club's generous contributions to our fundraising activities have been marvellous, and the chance for our users to experience the thrill of live football just fantastic: the magical opportunity for the children to be mascots for the home match against Chesterfield has been one of the highlights of the Playground's year.
"The children are still talking about it, as are their parents: chances for their special children to enjoy such 5-star experiences are almost unheard of, and it means so much to them to know that there are people out there who do value their children, who understand that, whilst they may approach life in a different way, they deserve, and appreciate, the same opportunities as those who have no special need. We are so grateful to the Club for making all this possible."

A match sponsorship package
Permission to use the title 'Official Charity Partner of Wycombe Wanderers 2014/15'
Matchday programme space
Agreed number of complimentary tickets for promotional use
