The Nottingham Panthers have continued their charity drive for the current 2021/22 season with their January partner Wolfpack Project.

The Wolfpack Project

They’re a Nottingham-based organisation working to promote awareness on youth loneliness and mental health.

Their website shows some worrying statistics, including: “75% of young people who experience a mental health problem aren’t getting the help they need”.

Damien Reynolds founded the organisation in 2019.

he had experienced youth loneliness and the associated mental health issues himself.

Reynolds discovered that he was not alone in the struggles he faced.

Furthermore he found there was few organisations tackling these issues.

Consequently he set up the Wolfpack Project up to combat this issue.

Which coupled with the Covid-19 pandemic is only getting worse.

With his discovery and taking inspiration from his own experiences he founded the project.

They provide many services on their website and in person.

All anyone interested in utilising these services would have to do is sign up online.

One of the team would be in contact within a few days.

From here there are one-on-one sessions and groups for people to attend.

Ran by mental health first aid trained team members they operate these out of two locations in Nottingham.

Everyone in their team is trained and has been through their own experiences with youth loneliness or mental health.

Charity Drive

The Wolfpack Project charity drive will have a stall in the foyer at all Nottingham Panthers games throughout January.

They will also run a competition to win a signed number 43 Mathieu Tousignant jersey.

Tousignant who scored in their most recent fixture against Fife, where they skated out 4-2 victors.

The Wolfpack Project were present and celebrated this victory with the Panthers fans.

Club mascot Paws will also be around, so the club are encouraging their fans to stop and have a chat at the stall.
