Carlton Town have made the Bill Stokeld Stadium available for a Children’s Charity Football team on the evening of Thursday 27th May once spectators are allowed back in to support the event and to let the excellent Charity to start raising money again as like everyone else, they have been unable to hold any recent matches due to Covid 19 restrictions.

Carlton’s very own Phil Jennings asked Chairman Mick Garton if the club could help and he was happy to oblige for a “brilliant cause” and below the charities Roberto tells us a little more about the excellent work they do.

AC Wollaton Charity are a unique charity football team whose sole objective is to raise vital funds for all charitlable causes with a particular focus on children with limited life expectancy. Our revenue is predominatlely generated by holding monthly charity football matches with established football clubs throughout the UK.

Since our conception in 2016 we have helped and supported numerous causes, which include The QMC’s Child Cancer Ward E39, The Rainbows Hospice, The Child Bereavement Centre, The Grenfell Disaster Fund, The Manchester Bombing Victims, and MIND Mental Health Support, to mention but a few.

 Over the last couple of years we have grown beyond our wildest dreams.We now have a catchment of players in excess of 190 all varying in ability and ages, more importantly everyone of them have played some part in our games.
AC Wollaton is primarily an adult football team split between a first team and then a vets team. We try to keep this balanced so everyone takes part regardless of age.

 Our charity work is not only solely football related, we have a Superhero team “The Angels” lead by Batman, we deliver gifts and presents within hospital wards during Christmas and additonally deliver Easter Eggs during the Easter period. “The Angels” have also made dreams come true making suprise appearances at birthday parties or just raising spirits with hospital visits.

 Additonally we have our sponsored Ghost Busting team. Our brave volunteers get themselves sponsored to go Ghost Hunting in various infamous haunted bulding with professional paranormal investigators and record their findings. Weve had some amazing stuff come out this and it’s certinly a thrilling experience.

The activites we undertake are exciting, fun filled but most of all fulfilling. Our doors are open to everyone whether its playing football, being a superhero for the afternoon or being a Ghost Buster during an evening. Our overriding objective is to help and support the sick and vulnerable during diffcult times.

 We call anyone who plays, contributes or just supports us in anyway “Angels” because that’s what they are “Angels”
