Poundland donate 500 Easter eggs

8 April 2022

Walsall Football Club are delighted to confirm we have received a donation of 500 Easter eggs from our partners Poundland.

The West Midlands based company have contributed significantly to the football club over recent months, with donations to our Christmas Toy Appeal and food bank initiatives.

The club has received 500 Easter eggs which will be distributed evenly between the football club and the Community Programme.

Eggs will be handed out during our upcoming open training session on Thursday 14th April (full details here) and at soccer school sessions over the course of the Easter holiday.

Adam Davy, Community Director at Walsall FC Community Programme, is thankful for the donation and is looking forward to distributing them to the participants.

"We are delighted to link with Poundland, this Easter, and have the opportunity to take part in helping to distribute their donation of 500 Easter Eggs," he said. 

“As ever, we are running the ever-popular Soccer Schools over the holiday and I am sure that all of the children taking part will appreciate some extra chocolate this Easter. This includes the HAF kids that have accessed the activity through the link with Walsall Council.

“We will also distribute the eggs to other participants on schemes in the run up to Easter including activities taking place on Good Friday.

“I would like to thank Poundland for their support and look forward to working with them even more, over the coming months, to further support the wider community."

Roy Whalley, Director at Walsall FC, has also praised Poundland for their continued support.

"Poundland are one of our key commercial partners through their Stand Sponsorship and long-term advertising on the Midpoint M6 sign," Roy said. 

“We should also acknowledge an extra dimension to the support we receive from them through their active participation in the local community. The Poundland Charity Foundation have already supplied a large consignment of Christmas toys earlier this season and now they have donated 500 Easter Eggs for distribution amongst our young supporters.

“This is a lovely gesture, at a time when there is not much good news about, that will put a smile on the faces of these youngsters.

“Thank you to Poundland Managing Director Barry Williams for his support for this project and Lucy Ruff for working with Walsall FC staff to make it all happen.”

Lucy, Charity Foundation Manager at Poundland added: “We’re ‘egg-static’ to support Walsall FC and donate 500 Easter eggs with the help of our friends at Nestle to kids in the community.

“Helping local communities and making a difference, especially when it’s close to home, is at the heart of what we do.

“We hope it’ll get the kids ‘egg-cited’ for a hoppin’ good Easter.”

The club would like to place on record its thanks to Poundland for their kind generosity and we look forward to building on our positive relationship in the coming months.
