The ‘Adams Park Family’ At Its Best – over £4,000 raised for charity!

Saturday night’s KenDarCom 2012 event showed how well our people pull together.

The music and comedy event, which also included a team quiz, raffle and auction, took place in a packed out Vere Suite and raised thousands of pounds for various good causes.

WWFC staff from the Ticket Office, Media, Food and Beverage and the Community Team all played a full part alongside some of the matchday hospitality stewards to make KenDarComm 2012 such a success. They were well supported in the audience by fans of all ages including Trust and WWFC Directors, the ‘Twitter Club’ and ‘Gasroomers’.

The star of the show was undoubtedly caretaker manager Gaz Ainsworth, who fresh from managing Wycombe to their first home win for 7 months in the afternoon, took to the stage to sing with local band Subrosa5. Is there no end to this man’s enthusiasm! He was also cheered on by a group of visiting QPR fans.

We will let you know the final amount raised from this fans’ evening in due course but it has already topped £4,000 with donations still coming in. Please see here some pictures taken by club photographer Paul Dennis. Thanks to all who attended and/or who contributed in any way.

Finally thanks must go to the two guys who chiefly made this event happen. Darren Willis pictured left (Commercial Executive at WWFC) who visited Kenya in the summer along with the Community Team to highlight some of the issues out there. A share of the night’s proceeds will be supporting that project. Matchday announcer Matt Cecil (right), who had organised a similar event last year, took on much of the promotional work as well as organising the raffle prizes and auction items. These also raised funds to support cancer charities (in memory of Steve Maguire, Jonny Saunders and Graham Cadle) and for Great Ormond Street Hospital (where Lee Harrison’s 10 year old son Luke is under going cancer treatment).
