Saddlers to welcome St Giles Hospice to Mansfield Town fixture

16 February 2024

We are pleased to be welcoming our friends from St Giles Hospice to this weekend’s Sky Bet League Two fixture against Mansfield Town at the Poundland Bescot Stadium.

St Giles Hospice is a registered charity founded in 1983 by the Reverend Paul Brothwell, originally to improve the care of local people dying with cancer.

They support people in local communities whose illnesses may not be curable such as cancer, motor neurone disease, heart failure, MS and respiratory disease as well as offering support for families and helpers.

Their dedicated team also provides individually-tailored care either at the hospice or in patients’ own homes across our communities and their range of specialist services is provided free of charge to those who need it.

Although St Giles receives some funding from the Government, they rely heavily on donations and fundraising.

On the day, bucket collectors and representatives from St Giles Hospice will be in and around the ground taking cash donations from supporters and we encourage all fans to dig deep and donate if you can to what is a worthy cause.

Supporters can also make an online donation by clicking here, or by scanning the QR code on their dedicated page in Saturday’s matchday programme. The QR code will also be scattered around the Mick Kearns Community Hub, The Locker and the Stadium Suite on matchday.

If you are making an online donation, please type ‘Walsall FC Fundraiser’ in the ‘reason for donating’ section before submitting.

Hannah Fahy, Head of Fundraising at St Giles Hospice said: “We’d like to express a big thank you to all Walsall FC staff and supporters for your kind generosity and for donations to the St Giles Hospice bucket collection at the match on Saturday. Your donations will help us significantly to continue to be there for people with a terminal illness and their loved ones. It takes a community to make a hospice and we couldn't do it without your kind support so on behalf of everyone at St Giles Hospice, thank you for your generosity.”
