A NIGHT of music is taking place to help raise cash for a community trust bidding to take over a leisure centre.

The Splash Community Trust has organised a night of music featuring locals bands and a DJ to help raise funds and support for their campaign to take over the running of Plas Madoc Leisure Centre, closed by Wrexham Council on April 27.

The trust has until October 1 to take over the facility, or it will be demolished by the council.

The group, spearheaded by chairman Darrell Wright and Clwyd South AM Ken Skates, have organised the music night at Air Products for May 17 with tickets costing £5 each.

Plaid Cymru’s Mabon ap Gwynfor, of Clwyd South, who has been vocal in support of the community trust, said: “The Splash Community Trust is an exciting proposal, and if it's going to work then all of us have to work together. I've been involved in establishing community enterprises. I know how much work is required.

“It's not an easy task, and there are many hoops to go through in order to access any grants.

“There’s a lot of goodwill out there, and we need to harness it as soon as possible to generate income and get money into the bank so that any new company can start trading as soon as the doors open.

“It’s why we organised this fundraiser at the Air Products Club on May 17.

"All the campaigners have worked hard for six months, they deserve to let their hair down. It’ll be a great night with a fantastic atmosphere.

“We have two popular local bands and a brilliant DJ taking part. They have agreed to participate because they support the cause.”

The night will be headlined by Movin’ On and supported by The Avenues and DJ Dutch Stan.

Tickets, at £5 each, are available from Cefn Mawr Post Office or Saith Seren, Chester Street, Wrexham, or by contacting Marc Jones on 07747 792441 or email marcvjones@gmail.com.
