West Midlands based automotive parts distributor, Midwest Motor Factors, has raised £840 for the Good Shepherd Ministry, Wolverhampton’s charity that assists the homeless and others in need in the local area.
This now takes Midwest’s total donations to the ministry to almost £1000, adding to the £250 raised last year in memory of popular Bilston Town FC chairman and community champion Graham Hodson, who died in early 2017.
The money raised helps the charity provide food and support, which was set up in 1972 by a Roman Catholic religious order of Brothers, that oversees projects all over the world to help the poor and disadvantaged.
Craig McCracken, Midwest Motor Factors group factor manager, said: “We are delighted to raise more much needed funds for the Good Shepherd Ministry, which will help those who need it most. As a regional-based business, we help the local community whichever way we can, shown through our various sports sponsorships involving Bilston Town FC, British Speedway team Wolverhampton Wolves and Walsall FC.”
