Our fundraisers kicked off a footballing idea which raised nearly £600 for hard-working local NHS trusts.

We donated a pair of signed and framed Wolverhampton Wanderers football shirts to NHS trusts in Dudley and Wolverhampton.

Dudley NHS Trust used their shirt as a prize in an online auction, while Wolverhampton NHS Trust held an online prize draw.

A total of £594.50 was raised.

Becky Poole, our Marketing Manager here at The Tipton said: "There was some great teamwork involved here and we were delighted to be able to support the NHS at this difficult time."

Rachel Robinson, Community and Events Fundraiser at The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Charity said: “We are very grateful to Tipton & Coseley Building Society. Their kind donation has helped us to raise £364.50 on our Just Giving page which will support our young patients and their families on the children’s ward at New Cross Hospital”.

Karen Phillips, Fundraising Manager for Dudley Group NHS Charity commented “We are so grateful to the Tipton for donating the shirt, they are always supportive of giving back to their local community. The auction raised such a lot of interest on our social media, and the online auction was a great way to engage with our supporters during lockdown.”

The shirts were signed by the Wolves first team from last season.
