Wycombe Wanderers’ charity partner Chilterns MS Centre will be special guests at Adams Park on Saturday 21st April, on a designated day of awareness and fundraising for the charity.
Celebrating the completion of the second season of the partnership between the two bodies, the upcoming matchday will give the charity the opportunity to meet Chairboys fans and collect donations to help with their ongoing work with people with multiple sclerosis (MS).
The Centre is also home to an oxygen chamber which has helped accelerate the recovery from injury of a number of Wanderers stars throughout the season. Predominantly used by people with MS, the chamber carries benefits for those with sports injuries, allergies, ulcer and neurological conditions, as well as for people recovering from cancer and strokes.
Wycombe captain Adam El-Abd showed his support by becoming the first to donate to the charity ahead of the Accrington fixture, during a visit to Adams Park from Simon Vickery – a member at the Centre and a Wanderers season-ticket holder.
Supporters can follow suit by making a cash donation to one of the various collectors around the stadium on the day of the game, or via the ‘text to donate’ service by texting WWFC18 £5 to 70070 to donate £5. A donation of just 50p from everyone at Adams Park on 21st April would be enough to keep oxygen pumping in the chamber for an entire football season – 46 matches of 90 minutes.
Meanwhile the Chilterns MS Centre will be running a competition across social media, offering one lucky Wycombe fan the opportunity to deliver the matchball to the centre circle ahead of kick-off on the day of the game. Keep an eye on their Facebook and Twitter pages to take part.
