Following an influx of donations from Wrexham supporters and football fans across the UK and overseas, we're delighted to announce that we have now reached the £15,000 milestone, less than 24 hours after surpassing £10,000.
All donations to the club through both UTST and the virtual 'fill the Racecourse' initiatives are helping safeguard the 156-year history of Wrexham AFC and ensuring we can compete both on the pitch and within our community. All donations big or small are hugely appreciated and showcase the phenomenal spirit and togetherness of our club.
Below is a message from the Wrexham Supporters Trust Fundraising Team.
Two weeks ago, the WST Fundraising Team launched Unite to Save the Town, an initiative to help raise funds for the club to help continue operating during these uncertain and difficult times.
As part of this, five per cent each will be donated to Nightingale House Hospice and Awyr Las to help them continue the fantastic support they offer to people when they need it most.
Once again, fans of Wrexham AFC have come forward to show their fantastic support of this fundraising drive and take up the rewards that are on offer or simply just donate. The Fundraising Team would like to thank you for already raising over £15,000 to help in these difficult times.
Wrexham AFC fans have also set up a Just Giving page to help raise much-needed funds. Just like UTST, five per cent each will be donated to Nightingale House Hospice and Awyr Las. The aim, for the first time ever, is to ‘virtually’ sell the Racecourse out. Each ‘seat’ is just a minimum of £2, making it the lowest costing ticket in professional football!
As of this week and with the Just Giving page going live for a short while, the fundraiser has reached our initial target of £2,000, but with your help we would love to keep filling those seats and pack out the Cae Ras having since broken through more targets of £5,000 and heading towards £7,500.
The Fundraising Team, and everyone else that has helped with these initiatives, would like to thank everyone that has contributed, particularly during this exceedingly difficult time for everyone.

Thank You & UTST.
