Lisa’s Latest Fundraising Challenge

Lisa and GarethClub loyal supporter and Trust member Lisa Bowker is taking on another challenge this year to raise funds for the Trust and Wycombe Wanderers.

UPDATE: With just over a fortnight to go, Lisa has gone through her original fundraising target of £2500 and has reset this to £3000.

Please support her efforts now – another way in which anybody can help the Trust and the Club.

Last summer Lisa climbed to the top of Snowdon as part of a special event involving fans from a number of clubs.

On 12th April, Lisa is going to do a 10,000 ft tandem skydive.

Manager Gareth Ainsworth and a number of the WWFC players are already supporting this effort and you can too.

Click here for details on how to sponsor Lisa and help YOUR CLUB

Please go to Lisa’s giving page and pledge what you can to help her reach her goal of £2500.

Anyone who sponsors £5 or more will be put in a draw to win a signed pair of Matt Ingram’s gloves.

Lisa won the Sky Bet League Two Fan of the Month Award for January. Click here for more details of this award.

Double Buses for the ‘derby’

WWFC and Arriva have agreed to run a two bus service on Good Friday for our big ‘M40 derby’ game vs Oxford United (ko 3pm).

The arrangement is that the first bus will depart Wycombe Railway Station at 1305 as normal, arriving at the ground at 1335 and then two buses will depart the Station at 1405 and 1410, with both buses leaving for town after the game.

As normal, all services will call at Eden Bus Station and Cressex Park & Ride en route to Adams Park.

We will also make this service available to Oxford fans, with an ideal boarding point being Cressex Park and Ride where buses will depart at 1325, 1425 and 1430 respectively.

In Trevor We Trust……………

……..no this was not the ‘dreaded vote of confidence’, but the name chosen for the Trust Board’s team in the Ex-Players Quiz Night.

The Trust’s team was Trevor and Rosie Stroud, David and Josephine Cook, David Roberton, Alan and Gaynor Cecil plus former Trust Secretary Maria Edwards with her sister and friend.

WWEXPAWe are pleased to report that our team finished joint second out of 18 teams only beaten by ‘The People’s Republic of Chinnor’.

Still ‘ it’s the taking part that counts’ ……but don’t tell that to Trevor!

See Wycombe Wanderers’ History in the Library

We would like to invite you visit a special exhibition at High Wycombe Library which has been running from early December and ending on Saturday 25th April 2015.

DSC01864The exhibition is a project led jointly by the Football Club, Wycombe Wanderers Trust and the Wycombe Wanderers Ex-Players Association showcasing memorabilia and artefacts from the club’s 127-year history, many of which have never before been viewed by the general public.

DSC01865It tells the story of the club’s Wembley years and famous cup runs, plus its various homes in the Wycombe area, while it also pays tribute to the legacy of Frank Adams and celebrates our “local heroes” and other connections which have helped cement the Chairboys into the heart of its local community.

The Wycombe library is situated opposite Marks and Spencer in the Eden Centre and the exhibition can be found on the second floor in the reference section. However near the first floor entrance there are entry forms for a special competition which anyone can enter, for which the answers can be found by looking at our special display cabinets dotted around the second floor.

DSC01868Some of the cabinets have drawers underneath enabling us to display some flat items so do open each drawer in turn.

For those interested in seeing more pictures from Wycombe Wanderers’ past, then go to Sharing Wycombe’s Old Photographs  via www.buckscc.gov.uk/swop – a Bucks Library Service initiative sponsored by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
