Prior to both of last season’s cup finals, the ‘Well support produced two amazing card displays which not only looked the part, but also raised over £9000 for the Well Society.
Organised by the Well Bois, with support from the Well Society, the fundraising effort was initially to cover the costs of the display. Following on from this, any additional funds generated were to be donated to the Well Society, with money raised further boosted with the “Double Your Money” initiative still in play.
Our support responded in their droves and by digging deep, they exceeded all expectations and ensured that the Well Bois were able to turn our end of Hampden Park claret and amber, giving our players a sight to behold as they walked out of the tunnel to a rapturous welcome.
“We would like to thank the Well Bois and the Motherwell support for this incredible effort,” Well Society board member Maureen Kirkwood said.
“Each and every person involved should be exceptionally proud of how it looked and, of course, the funds raised too.
“Time and time again our fans knock it out of the park, and we at the Well Society will never take that for granted.”
Derek Watson, one of the many fans who helped coordinate the displays, added: “We wanted to make sure our fans were represented at the final and we were delighted about how it all turned out.
“We greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts in making this happen, in particular a big thanks to John McAlpine and Andy Lewis who helped design the displays.
“It’s always been our aim to bring colour and atmosphere to Motherwell matches, both home and away, and we are extremely grateful to the Motherwell support for their continuous support.”
