Wolves Wishes: Owen Aulton

Young fan to attend first Wolves game - as a mascot!

The final Christmas Wolves Wish saw Danny Batth and James Henry go back to school to surprise a young football fan who has not yet been to a Wolves game.

Ten-year-old Owen Aulton was visited in his classroom at Bushbury Hill Primary School, where Danny and James delivered the surprise.

Owen’s sister Lucy has been bravely battling leukaemia for much of her short life so far.

For years she has undergone lengthy and invasive treatment, including chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant and, most recently, a liver transplant.

With the support of her family, she continues to fight on day after day, and somehow she continues to smile.

This Christmas, a group of dedicated volunteers have been trying to make Lucy’s Christmas extra special.

Her hospital room at Birmingham Children’s Hospital is full of Christmas decorations, and there are other surprises in store.

Owen has had to spend a lot of time away from Lucy and his Mom whilst she has been battling her illness, but has been keen to follow in the footsteps of his Dad, who used to attend matches at Molineux.

Wolves Wishes decided to go one better than that though, and offer Owen a mascot place at the home game with Bolton in January.

As you will see from the website, it was a lot to take in and the little fella was a bit overwhelmed!

We hope he has a great time as a mascot, and wish Lucy and her family all the very best for Christmas and the future.
