WREXHAM Police FC have launched a fundraiser for a very special young boy who needs your support.

Four-year-old Louis Perrin was born with a rare genetic condition called TUBA1A. 

As well as having epilepsy and cerebral palsy, the young Wrexham AFC fan suffers from painful leg spasms and limited mobility leading him to become dependent on a wheelchair.

The family from Wrexham now need to adapt their family home to support Louis and meet all of his medical needs, which will cost approximately £40,000.

In an act of true kindness, Wrexham Police FC are using their upcoming charity match against North Wales Dragons at Colliers Park to fundraise for the family.

The proceeds from the match, set to take place on Saturday, March 23, will go towards supporting Louis and his family in a time of need as he is currently unable to access rooms within the family home, even his own bedroom.

So far, an incredible £1,700 has been raised. You can access the JustGiving page here.

All donations of any amount will allow Louis to live a much more comfortable and independent life as he grows older.

Louis's parents Aaron and Charlotte Perrin say he loves football and regularly watches his beloved Wrexham AFC as well as listening to music.

Aaron said: "The support that the community has shown us is outstanding and has really touched our hearts.

"We're so grateful to everyone involved in organising and supporting this event. To be able to fund these adaptions for Louis means so much to us as a family.

"We just want Louis to have the same opportunities around his home as any other child his age would have."

Founder of Wrexham Police FC Sgt Dave Smith said: "When I was told about Louis’s story it really moved me.

"He is currently unable to able to access his own bedroom and other rooms within the family home. We hope to raise as much as we can to help him and his family."

What Louis needs:

  • A bedroom on the ground floor which is wheelchair accessible, has enough space for independent play and for his parents to care for him.

  • A ground floor wet room to support him receive intimate care and eventually independent self-care in dignity



  • Ease of access around the home to his own space and wet room by widening doorways

  • Space for his standing frame, wheelchair, hoists, changing tables and physio equipment

The family want to express their gratitude to everyone at Wrexham Police FC for organising the fundraiser, as well as the Wrexham community and donators for their kindness and support.
