“Deadpool” carving tour begins today – with charity raffle planned for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Wrexham Football Club’s well documented takeover has inspired local chainsaw artist Simon O’Rourke to create a ‘Deadpool’ tribute.

Simon says he has produced something quite special and hopes to have some fun with it whilst raising money for two local charities.

From today and through tomorrow (22nd and 23rd October) a Deadpool carving will be touring around many locations in Wrexham and people are being encouraged to take selfies with the artwork and post with the hashtag #Wrexhamdeadpooltour with organisers saying if you snap and uploads three selfies across three sites “there is a chance that you could win a prize”.

After the tour, the carving will be raffled off with the proceeds split between Nightingale House Hospice and Teams 4U.

Carving locations and timings (timings are approximate):


  • One Planet (Llandegla) – 9am
