On Friday 15th November, the Good Shepherd joins forces with the Wolverhampton Wanderers Foundation to host its first ever sleepout at the historic Molineux Stadium. Taking place from 7pm until 7am, the Molineux Sleepout aims to raise £30,000 for those that are vulnerably housed or already homeless in Wolverhampton. The money raised will help support the Good Shepherd build its new centre opposite Molineux, allowing it to grow its services and facilities to reach out to those who are homeless and at risk of exclusion.
For the last 16 years, the Good Shepherd have been helping some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and families in the community and now has 1100 registered service users with 59 different nationalities represented. Through support and guidance, the Good Shepherd aims to empower people to make lasting changes to their lives and find long term solutions to poverty and homelessness. Since 1991, Wolves Foundation has strived to use the strength of football to create more inclusive projects and continues to work on schemes such as Molineux Memories, X-PERT Diabetes Education, Wolves in the Park and Walking Football.
In January 2019, its initiative to work with vulnerable adults saw the launch of Head 4 Health. Those braving the sleepout can take advantage of the pitchside photo opportunities, while tea and coffee will be served within the Paycare Lounge. Wolverhampton Wanderers fans will also be in for a treat as former captain Karl Henry, is set to camp in the Stan Cullis Stand. It is essential for all those taking part to pack warm clothes, sleeping bag, food and drinks. Each person is asked to raise £100 and pay a registration fee of £25. All money raised will be split between the Good Shepherd and Wolves Foundation.
