Wanderers fan to scale the summit for club funds

This Is Local London: Lisa Bowker with Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth Lisa Bowker with Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth

FAN Lisa Bowker is appealing for help from fellow Blues supporters to raise money for the club with a charity climb of Snowdon.

She'll be making the hike with club board member David Roberton next month and they hope to raise £5,000 between them.

A whip-round from the players, coaching team and office staff has added to the fundraising total, with Gary Doherty contributing £100 of the £1,300 she's raised so far.

Although the two Wycombe fans will be raising money for Wanderers, they have been invited to take part in the challenge by members of the supporters' trust at Wrexham.

The Welsh club are celebrating their 150th anniversary this year and have asked 150 members of other clubs' supporters trusts to join them in the charity climb.

Chinnor resident Mrs Bowker said: "There will be about 300 of us all, so it should be quite a spectacle with all of us in our shirts going up."

The mum-of-four added: "We went on holiday a few years ago to Prestatyn and we did want to climb it then but the kids were too little. When I saw this, I thought, 'That's perfect'.

"I'm very passionate about Wycombe and I want to try and raise as much money as possible."

The climb takes place on Sunday, June 29, and fans wanting to sponsor the pair can email secretary@wycombewandererstrust.com.
