The Warrington Wolves Foundation Pass It Back Project is an extension of the already successful Wire2Wolves Heritage Project. In 2013, the Wire2Wolves Timeline was installed in the South Stand at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, featuring the rich heritage of Warrington Rugby League Club and the town, and the transition from ‘Wire’ to ‘Wolves’.
The Pass it Back Project was created to take the timeline out into the community and give access to those who are not able to visit the Stadium, allowing them to record their memories on the ‘Pass it Back’ website or mobile app so that they are stored forever and can then be accessed by all.
In conjunction with Livewire Warrington, the mobile exhibition will be on the road for the next six months, visiting the six leisure centres and nine libraries across the town and allowing fans and residents to leave their memories. The Foundation will also organise special visits to the exhibition sites from Warrington Wolves Past Players as they also share their memories.
A Warrington Wolves representative said; “2016 sees the club celebrate 140 years. Warrington Wolves is proud of its rich heritage and sharing memories plays a big part in celebrating its history. We have supporters of all ages, coming from far and wide, all with their own stories to tell. Exhibitions like this are vital in spreading the word of The Wire and now the Wolves as having supporters recording their memories helps to fill in the jigsaw and helps us understand what has helped make our club what it is today.”
