Christmas Appeal: Thank you one and all

Ian Nicholson - 27th December 2020

Christmas Appeal: Thank you one and all Due to Tier 4, the Christmas deliveries were slightly different and cut back than planned but we still got the job done. Thank you to everyone who helped and congratulations to Brian Bowyer who will receive the framed and signed Woking shirt after being drawn from the hat.

In all, we raised well over £2000 and...

• Supplemented 60 local families with Christmas meals (many delivered by players)

• Provided dozens of family items for Woking Foodbank

• Donated hundreds of pounds worth of toys to the children at St Peter’s Hospital and the Royal Surrey

• Delivered 10 hampers to fans and families

• Gave 5 Christmas Trees to homeless families being accommodated by the Council

• Specifically focussed on several families with food, toys for children and gift vouchers for adults

Here is some of the immediate feedback we have received:

Thank you very much for all you’ve done for us. The presents are so much more than I was expecting. Even the little girl was so excited about it that she couldn’t keep still, everyone was happy.

You’ve brought so much joy to us. Thank you, very much and Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy new year.

A huge thank you to the amazing people at Woking FC and the people of Woking. My two boys haven’t stopped talking about what was a brilliant surprise visit from some of the guys bearing gifts for Christmas.

It’s a big help to restore faith in horrible times.

Thank you very much for the gift, I am feeling very humble right now.

Not sure what I did to deserve it though. Please thank everyone concerned.

Had I known that I would be visited by the players I would have been outside waiting!

Give them an extra cheer for me,
Happy Christmas to you.

I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone at WFC for your kind generosity. Feeling totally overwhelmed! I could of cried at the front door just seeing how happy my little girl was.

Thank you again and you all have a lovely Christmas.


-

This is fantastic. Thanks to everyone that is able to help spread joy to our community in this (and all) times of need.

Furthers the message that we are indeed a community club at our core.

Brilliant teamwork, I am the luckiest chairman in the world to have such a community minded club (plus some pretty good footballers!). - Rosemary Johnson
