Welcome to fundraising….in Wrexham

Over £1000 was raised in aid of Wrexham mental health and wellbeing charity Advance Brighter Futures (ABF) at Wrexham AFC football ground recently.

In total, an enormous £1049 was raised at the match on Saturday, August 19th, as fans and supporters generously made donations in the collection buckets spaced around the football ground.

ABF has provided mental health and wellbeing support in Wrexham since 1992, and the money raised will go directly towards supporting people in the local community.

Zoe Whitehead, Business Development Officer at ABF, said:

“We’d like to thank Kerry Evans, Disability Liaison Officer, and everyone at Wrexham AFC for choosing to support ABF this season with a bucket collection, along with our dedicated volunteers who gave up their Saturday afternoon to help us raise vital funds for the charity.

“There was a great atmosphere at the ground, and we cannot thank the fans enough for their donations to us. We’ve all watched the Welcome to Wrexham documentary and being able to experience the community spirit first hand was amazing. We understand times are hard for most right now, so their generosity blew us away. In fact, it was the most raised at a bucket collection in the history of ABF!

“We’re only a small charity, so any donation, big or small, really does mean the world to us. The incredible amount raised at Wrexham AFC will go directly to helping local people in our community with their mental health and wellbeing.

“Our services have been needed more than ever over recent months, and we want to help as many people as we can. These donations will allow us to support more people, so they really are appreciated.”
