WREXHAM Police FC and FC United Wrexham visited the Wrexham Maelor Hospital Children's Ward as part of their fundraising.

They visited the ward to hear how the money raised will be used to fund training and better facilities. 

The money raised will make a real difference to local children and their families when they need it most.

The Leader:

Sargeant Dave Smith, founder of Wrexham Police FC, said: "It really was a privilege to be invited to visit the Children’s Ward and meet the nurses. The care that they provide and the team on the ward really are fantastic.

"We were told that the money raised will be used to buy specialist oncology equipment that will make a real difference for local patients and their families.

"I’d like to thank everyone that has donated and supported our fundraising efforts, it’s been incredible and I’m very grateful. Everyone’s welcome to come to the game and support both teams, donations will be collected by volunteers from the ward. There’s still time to donate, any amount big or small will really help."

So far, they have raised over £11,000 for the Children's Ward, with their new target being £15,000.

The fundraising efforts have been in aid of the charity match taking place on Saturday July, 1, at 10.30am between Wrexham Police FC and FC United of Wrexham. 


The event will take place at Bronwens Green, Brymbo.

Andrew Ruscoe, FC United of Wrexham founder, said: "Being a part of this remarkable journey has filled my heart with joy and pride. Witnessing the unity and compassion displayed by everyone involved has reaffirmed my belief in the power of collective action."

Everyone is welcome to go down and watch the match to show their support.
