A pub at the heart of Wrexham AFC’s Disney documentary has generously donated £1,000 from its annual fundraiser to support seriously ill local children.

The Turf pub, which is run by Wayne Jones, regularly features on ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ and has seen the club’s star owners Ryan Reynold and Rob McElhenney as regular patrons.

The pub, which is right next door to Cae Ras, recently ran its annual charity fundraiser in 2023 with the community of Wrexham and beyond all donating to raise thousands of pounds to be split amongst a number of charities, including us. 

An honour

“Hope House was always going to be one of our priorities to give to this year,” said Wayne. “Hope House does incredible work and sadly lots of families in our local area go through very difficult times and if we can help in any tiny way then we are happy to.

“It really has been an honour to raise this money for Hope House, although I can’t take all the credit. Most of the money came from others that donated which is amazing.” 

Our fundraiser Cat said: “We are so incredibly grateful to Wayne and everyone at The Turf for choosing to support Hope House with their annual fundraiser.

“It really is amazing to see the Wrexham community coming together to support seriously ill local children. Everything donated makes such a difference and ensures we can be here for the children and families that need us.”
