As the Club’s longest continuous current sponsor, we are extremely proud to have supported the Accessible Lounge for over two decades, and we very much look forward to continuing to do so through our partnership with Wolves Community Trust over the months and years ahead.
The wonderful Baroness Rachael Heyhoe Flint, who we sadly bid farewell to earlier this year, played a truly outstanding contribution to not only our business through her constant support, advocacy and guidance during her role as President of Paycare, but to every single organisation, and individual, she touched throughout her life.
Sport was in Rachael’s blood and as England Women’s Cricket Captain and goalkeeper for the England national field hockey team, she was a role model for many across the world. Her roots, however, lay here in Wolverhampton, and Rachael was immensely passionate about her role as Director, and later, Vice President of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC – a position she held since 2003.
Rachael was absolutely key to the formation of the Club’s Accessible Lounge, which provides Wolves’ disabled supporters with access to a range of dedicated facilities and activities. The Lounge remains a wonderful space that is much valued by the Club’s disabled fans, their families and friends, and it seems a fitting tribute to pass the name over to Rachael, an honour I know she would be hugely proud of.
