Two defibrillators donated to Wrexham Amateur Athletic Club at Queensway Stadium for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Wrexham Amateur Athletics Club have been presented with a defibrillator for use at the track-side at the Queensway Stadium in Wrexham, and a second defibrillator for athletic events held in remote locations.

The defibrillators were bought following kind donations made to the Club from the families of two Club stalwarts following their passing in 2020 ; David Alun Williams and Ron Odunaiya.

David Alun Williams was Vice Chairman of Wrexham AAC from 1975-1986, and Club Chairman from 1986-2018. He was also a Life Member and Honorary Life Vice President of the Club. David was also a Life Member of Welsh Athletics (2005), with a Meritorious Service Award (1994), Award of Honour (2013) and a Lifetime Achievement Award (2016).

Ron Odunaiya had a passion for athletics, being an excellent long jumper and sprinter in his youth. He spent many hours supporting his children in their athletic pursuits for Wrexham AAC as they were growing up, and all three children were chosen to represent Wales.

Pictured are members of the Wrexham AAC Committee being presented with the defibrillators by Helen Odunaiya (Ron’s widow) and Llinos Williams (David’s daughter).
