Tim Williams from Spirit of 58 recently teamed up with the Fat Boar to hold a charity event that has raised £800 for Wrexham Children’s Ward.

The mini music festival was held on the same day as Wrexham’s home draw with Bromley, and featured a range of entertainment including Gareth Owen, and included raffles and the pop up Spirit ’58 stall. Spirit of 58 is a grass roots Welsh football merchandise brand, that has become a mainstay for welsh football fans.

Tim told us: “The cheque was handed over at the Fat Boar to the children’s ward at Maelor. Myself and the Fat boar put on a charity music festival with local bands snd artists and Dj’s before and after the Bromley match.

“We raised money by charging £5 for a ticket which included a hog roast and a raffle.”

Rich Watkin from the Fat Boar told us: “We were delighted to work with Tim from Spirit of 58 to put on the event to raise money to help towards the incredible work and care that goes on at the Wrexham Children’s Ward. In a time where all we here about is the continual cutting of funding to the NHS we wanted to make a contributing to help.”

“We were delighted to raise £800 and that’s thanks to the generosity of all the music artists who played for hugely reduced fees, the DJ’s & the people who came and attended who bought raffle tickets.”

Rich added: “We look forward to hosting another fundraiser/ promotion party with Tim to raise more money at the end of the season.”

“Thanks to all who performed, donated and supported this event”
