A new bank account has been created to help save Plas Madoc Leisure Centre – and supporters are being asked to help get the ball rolling.
The Splash Community Trust has opened its own account as it prepares for a huge fundraising drive in a bid to reopen the popular facility.
A band night at Air Products Social Club in Acrefair last Saturday (May 17) raised about £400, and there are a host of money-spinning projects planned – including a quiz night this Friday.
The Old Black Horse in Rhostyllen has also shown its support by offering to host a fundraising race night for the trust.
Splash director Greg Ogden, who lives in Trevor, said: “We have some really exciting fundraising plans and projects lined up, and we are grateful to everyone who has contacted us to suggest ideas and offer their support.
“We need to keep this going if we’re going to succeed in reopening Plas Madoc, so if you can donate then please do so. Every pound will help.”
The quiz night takes place Flexys Club in Acrefair at 8pm on Friday. Greg added: “There will be questions on all sorts of things: Music, films and TV, sports, science – you name it.
"There will also be a raffle, and we’ve got several great prizes already including free haircuts and driving lessons, bottles of wine, a meal for two and a hand-painted antique watering can. It should be a great night!”
The trust is also working on a new website, which is coming soon and will include a ‘donate’ button so supporters can boost the coffers at the click of a button. In the meantime, if you’d like to make a donation to the Splash Community Trust – or have any fundraising ideas – contact Jenny Miller on 07921 659099.
