Football fans back Splash fundraiser

Football fans are backing plans to re-open the Plas Madoc Leisure centre as a community venture with a bucket collection outside the Racecourse tomorrow.

Wrexham FC and Wrexham Supporters' Trust have given their approval for a bucket collection to boost the coffers of the Splash Community Trust before the December 20th game against Dartford.

Greg Ogden, on behalf of the Splash Community Trust, said: "We're delighted that football fans are backing Splash in such a practical way. Hopefully they'll also be returning to use Plas Madoc's pool, gym and leisure facilities once it re-opens on December 6th but we will continue to fundraise and look to publicise the venture in the community."

Marc Jones, who has organised the collection, said: "Wrexham fans know all about community ownership and the importance of fundraising when times are tough. We now own our club after a long struggle and I'm fans will want to support another important community venture at Plas Madoc. 
 "The Splash Community Trust is still in its infancy and will need support from all quarters after it opens - this is just a small contribution towards that fighting fund from Wrexham fans."

Anyone wanting to help with the bucket collection between 2-3pm before the game should come to the junction of Crispin Lane and Mold Road.
