Fundraising

We are truly dependent on the generosity of public help and your help can be given in many different ways.

Charity Week 2017

Official Partner Charity#UkCharityWeek takes place 4th – 10th December 2017 and we are proud to be an official partner charity this year.

December 2017 will see Charity Today News and their official partner charities host the second annual national charity awareness and fundraising campaign #UKCharityWeek.

It is a week designed to give people of the UK an opportunity to place awareness and fundraising for charities high on the national agenda and is always held within the first full week of December.
We have a variety of events planned and hope that you will join us for our celebrations and will announce them as charity week approaches.

Please Support Graeme Brookes

My grandfather Ronald ‘Ronaldo’ Brookes was a life long Walsall FC fan. He watched his first game in 1922. He was there for every relegation to every promotion for 78 years! The thing that made him that extra bit special was…

He was deaf and blind. Born deaf and losing his sight as a teenager – he didn’t let it beat him and it certainly didn’t stop him watching Walsall as much as possible, both home and away. This is why I am walking 20 miles a day for around 7 and half consecutive days until I walk down Wembley Way on Sunday March 22nd to watch the Super Saddlers.

A hair raising time!

An amazing £2,300.00 was raised by staff and volunteer members who agreed not to shave for a whole month to raise funds for our transport.

Christmas Stall 2009

To raise some much needed funds, staff braved the freeeeeezing cold in December 2009, selling gifts, reindeer food and other items, as well as face painting for voluntary contributions. We raised over £500.

Local Pub Support

We have had loyal support over the years from local pubs raising funds for the Society, including The George, The Fountain and The Cuckoo and Bell.

The George Pub in Willenhall, raised £400 for us in 2010.

The Fountain Pub in Walsall, have held quiz nights and raffles, including raffling a Christmas hamper in 2010

The Cuckoo and Bell Pub in Walsall had been raising money for us throughout 2010, with various theme nights, including Halloween. For Valentine’s Day they donated and raffled off a cuddly toy bear, they also put together a hamper for Christmas which they raffled for us.

Flying high in the sky

Chantelle, is from Walsall and is registered as partially sighted and suffers with Nystagmus,

Chantelle jumped out of a plane and raised over £300 in the process.

Of course, we don’t expect everybody to jump out of a plane, (unless you really want to!) because there are literally hundreds of ways that you can fundraise for WSB, a cake sale or a quiz night can raise amazing amounts of money – and all for a good cause!
