A raffle to win a bottle of Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation gin has raised a fantastic £263.35 in aid of Wrexham mental health and wellbeing charity Advance Brighter Futures (ABF).

The bottle was kindly donated by The Saith Seren Welsh Centre after they had a special delivery of three cases of Aviation gin from Ryan Reynolds, just days after the Deadpool film star and his fellow actor Rob McElhenny were allowed to take ownership of Wrexham AFC.

The lucky winner of the raffle and proud owner of the piece of local history was Leon Bowen. Leon has since took some stunning pictures of his prize…take a look and see for yourselves.


The raffle has raised vital funds which ABF can now put towards helping local people as it continues to offer its wellbeing services through the ongoing pandemic.

Cath Taylor, Business Development Officer at Advance Brighter Futures, said: “Thank you so much to Saith Seren for choosing us and a massive thanks also goes to everyone who took the time to buy a ticket. The pandemic has had a huge impact on mental health, and as a small charity we’ve relied on fundraising to help us work through this challenging period.

“There is a big demand for our services in the local area, and more people will now be able to use them because of these ticket sales. Even if you didn’t win, you should be proud of yourself. I’m sure that Ryan will be delighted that his gin has helped to raise money for a number of Wrexham charities recently, and we are so pleased to be one of them.”
