WREXHAM'S most famous landlord has promised to donate sales to local charities next month.

Wayne Jones, owner of The Turf pub, has vouched to donate one full weeks 'Butty Van' sales to local charities.

Anything purchased between Monday, December 18 to 23 will be donated to local causes who very much need their support.

In a Facebook post, Wayne said: "If you are a local charity / service and feel you need support please feel free to reach out and we’ll see what we can do to help.

"This is not a cry for help but if you feel like supporting you are very welcome to drop money off at the Butty Van / Pub. Every penny will go towards supporting our own."

On top of this, you can purchase a raffle ticket for just £2 to win the chance at one of the Football Association Wales' framed portraits which will be signed by AFC co-owner Ryan Reynolds himself. They have five to win.

Last year with the help of the local international community and second co-chairman Rob McElhenney, Wayne raised over £12,000 which helped so many deserving local causes.

The fundraiser announcement has sparked bouts of enthusiasm from Wrexham residents and AFC fans.

Daz Jones said: "Not all heroes wear capes. Some own butty vans and run boozers."

Peter Humphreys shared the announcement on Facebook and said: "Wayne Jones is an absolute top lad. Great pub, great grub and a deserved reputation as one of the best landlords around."


The Turf gained an international reputation by featuring in Wrexham AFC's docu-series Welcome to Wrexham after the USA takeover by Hollywood's very own Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

Due to considerable demand from supporters, the butty van menu on match day changes but on non-match days you can order from the breakfast or dinner menu.

If you want to give back to the local community this Christmas, you'll find the landlord's van next to the Turf on Mold Rd, Wrexham.
