formation, the trust has raised or helped to raise
much needed funds for a number of local and national
registered charities and other worthy causes by way
of giving a little back.
This has been
done either through our own fundraising efforts, or
through those of others connected to Walsall
Football Club, its supporters and the local
community, including Walsall FC staff, players,
former players, local schools, hospitals and any
other group or organisation in need of help and
Supporters' Trust currently supports the Saddlers
Learning Centre which is based at the Banks's
Stadium provides learning opportunities for local
school children to engage in team bonding and
confidence building activities, including sporting
activities within an environment other than school
and we are proud to support Centre Manager Sue Lane
and the work and opportunities the centre provides.
