Blues send gifts to Wycombe's twin town Kelkheim

German town receive 50 winter coats for local football club.

7 December 2020

Wycombe Wanderers have donated 50 winter coats to a community foundation associated with local football in Kelkheim, Germany, which is twinned with the town of High Wycombe.

The shipment was arranged by the club’s WorldWide Wanderers Phenomenon arm, which seeks to develop networks of Chairboys fans across the planet and earlier this year arranged – with striker Uche Ikpeazu – a delivery of kit to a Ugandan children’s charity.

Harry Gadd, the club’s Global Marketing Executive, said: “There is a rapidly growing number of Wycombe Wanderers supporter groups across the globe, and one particular focus for us is developing relationships between the club, the town, and parts of the world with which Wycombe has had a connection throughout history.

“It’s been fascinating learning about the twinning arrangement between the two towns, and we hope that the young footballers in Kelkheim will enjoy wearing the Wycombe Wanderers badge and learning more about this proud Championship football club 500 miles away.”

Situated 10km west of Frankfurt, Kelkheim has been twinned with High Wycombe for 35 years, and share a history of furniture manufacture. The twinning agreement of 1985 declared that the arrangement would “maintain permanent bonds between the two municipalities, promoting exchanges of all kinds between inhabitants with the aim of fostering the true spirit of European brotherhood.”
