    Story

    Our group, WrestleKind is a new non-profit set up in 2020 by Scottish wrestling stalwart Jack Jester (Lee Greig), Scottish NXT star Viper/Piper Niven (Kimberly Benson) and Get-Well Gamers UK founder James Stewart with the aim of bringing joy to disadvantaged and vulnerable group through the power of professional wrestling.

    This year has been difficult for everyone, but the impact on vulnerable groups and the houseless has been especially tough. We're hoping to harness the generosity of wrestling fans across the country to come together and help us purchase some essentials for those most in need this winter.

    We are currently engaging with street teams in Glasgow to get a list of the most in demand items required - these include sportswear like jackets, boxers/underwear, waterproof backpacks, small hotel-sized toiletries and feminine hygiene products. We plan to use the raised money to purchase these items in bulk and donate them to multiple groups working on the front-line.

    All donations at £5 and over will be entered into a raffle to win a signed singlet and a pair of boots from NXT UK Superstar Piper Niven, worn mostly during matches in Japan. The last date for donations to be considered as entries will be 23:59 on 14 December 2020!

    Who we we:

    Jack Jester, 16-year veteran of the British wrestling scene. Kimberly Benson, NXT UK Superstar and one of the first Scottish women to wrestle for WWE. James Stewart, software developer and experienced charity founder.

    We have submitted our paperwork for the charity registration process to the Official Scottish Charities Register. The charity is supported entirely by voluntary contributions.

      Hey everyone! So we've absolutely smashed our £500 target, and we've been able to release some of the donated funds from JustGiving and we've already been able to purchase over 1,000 essential items! These include gloves, socks, underwear, toiletries, ponchos, handwarmers and backpacks! We're hoping to get this into the right hands before the year is out - and it was all made possible by you! The last chance for entries to win our raffle prize is tonight (14 Dec) and we'll be drawing the winner hopefully before Christmas! Thanks! James
