Five Wrexhamites will be jumping out of an airplane in a sponsored parachute jump to raise funds for Wrexham FC.
The parachute jump, which will take place on Friday April 18th, will be part of Wrexham Football Club’s continued 150th Anniversary celebrations.
Leading the way will be Club Director, former Wrexham player and Welsh international, Barry Horne. Wrexham FC Commercial manager Steve Cook will closely follow Barry, and members of the Wrexham Supporters’ Trust Board, Peter Howell and Anita Robinson will then follow him. Finally, Wrexham fan and the Declan Swans lead singer, Scoot, will make up the quintet.
150th Anniversary Chairman, and Club President, Dixie McNeil, said: “This is a great fundraising initiative for our 150th Anniversary, and again highlights how much this fans owned football club means to us all from the Board room to the fans. It’s OUR Club.
“I hope that fans of the club will give Barry, Steve, Peter, Anita and Michael the support that they deserve doing this, as I there’s no way I would jump out of a plane! I know that this is a big achievement for all five to make, as they have never done anything like this before. I hope that fans dig deep again to support them.”
Fans can sponsor the quintet by filling in the sponsorship form in either the Club Shop or the Trust Shop, or by visiting www.gofundme.com/WFCSkyDive
