WWF Awarded £10k Grant from Sky Bet EFL Building Foundations Fund

Wycombe Wanderers Foundation has been awarded a £10,000 grant from the Sky Bet EFL Building Foundations Fund to support our Twinning Project, as well as launching our No More Falls seated exercise programme for over 60’s.

The Twinning Project, delivered in partnership with Aylesbury Prison, is tasked with offering employability support to prisoners with less then a year on their sentence, to help rehabilitate them back into the community by providing them with coaching qualifications.

No More Falls, which forms part of our “Factor 60” programme, is a seated exercise provision designed as a proactive, preventative and recovery measure for over 60’s that have suffered, or are at risk, from falling.

Over 60 EFL club community organisations have received a grant in the first phase of funding, which aims to improve the quality of life within communities through the access to, and quality of, football provisions and initiatives.

Applications covering projects across a range of categories, such as improving local sporting facilities or promoting the physical and social benefits of the game, were considered, and rubber-stamped by a panel of industry experts including Sky Bet ambassador Jeff Stelling last month.

The Building Foundations Fund represents the largest multi-year sponsor-backed fund dedicated solely to community activity and the process is underway to give EFL Community Club Organisations (CCOs) a chance to bid for grants of up to £100,000 to invest in ongoing programmes or to develop new initiatives.

The EFL and Sky Bet agreed a record extension earlier this year that saw the sports betting brand continue as the League’s title partner until the end of the 2028/29 campaign. The commitment to a community fund was an integral part of the extension agreement.
