INJURED Chester FC star Michael Wilde was joined by a familiar face when he attended the Multiple Sclerosis Support Centre in Saltney for his daily dose of treatment.
The Blues striker, who fractured his collarbone in a painful pre-season fall, was accompanied by club mascot BiG Lupus during one of his visits to use the centre’s oxygen chamber.
Andrew Donaldson, managing director of BiG Storage, who are one of the Blues’ key sponsors, helped set up the daily treatment at the centre in order to boost the 27-year-old’s recovery.
Mr Donaldson said: “I was delighted to help try and accelerate Michael's recovery whilst at the same time raising the profile of one of our local charities.”
MS Support Centre spokeswoman Katie Roebuck added: “The use of regular oxygen treatment provides relief for people with multiple sclerosis and also accelerates the healing process in a variety of other circumstances.”
Wilde, who scored 37 goals last season as Chester secured the Evo-Stik First Division North title, will also being joined at the centre by team mate Ashley Williams.
The midfield general will be using the oxygen chamber after dislocating his shoulder in the away match at Hednesford Town.
