The Wycombe Wanderers Trust, working together with the Football Club and the WW Sports and Education Trust, have strengthened ties with the local Muslim Community in recent times.
We have taken on board a recommendation to open a new Multi-Faith Room (off the Caledonian Suite) to provide space for religious observance on matchdays and during other events. This room, which had been redecorated for this purpose by some of the midweek volunteers, had its official opening last Saturday.
600 invitations were issued to the High Wycombe mosque for the game vs Doncaster Rovers and nearly 400 of those were taken up with seats provided in the Troo Stand as the club marked the start of Ramadan. The club also arranged for local caterers Karak Chaii to attend the game to provide Halal food before kick off.
