We are proud to continue our support for local charities and this year's nominated charities are: The Shooting Star Appeal, Alzheimer's Society, Dynamic and The Caia Park Partnership.

Newly co-opted board member, Stuart Roberts had the pleasure of informing our new partners. Stu is a lifelong fan and involved with the community group. He said "having the responsibility of informing the charities was awesome! Seeing the expressions on their faces highlights what our club means to the community!"

When receiving the news, Amy Lynch from Dynamic said; "that's amazing, this sort of thing just doesn't happen to us!" Dynamic is a Wrexham based charity and a unique resource that provides out of school activities for children and young people with special needs. The children have a range of disabilities from physical, intellectual or sensory impairments and emotional problems, to life limiting illnesses.

We will also be continuing our partnership with the Alzheimer's Society which has been a great success over the last twelve months.We already work together delivering a monthly Football Reminiscing project at the Glyndwr University Racecourse Ground.

The Caia Park Partnership instantly saw the benefits for the children and young people who are supported by Darren Richardson, the Children and Young Peoples Services Manager. When told of the tickets that will be made available to watch Wrexham, Darren said "That'll be amazing for the young people!"

Caia Park Partnership Ltd (CPP) is a community led organisation located in the heart of Caia Park in Wrexham. CPP works with individuals, communities and partner organisations in Caia Park and Wrexham wide to provide activities, services and facilities that meet identified community needs. In recent years CPP has undertaken the development of a number of social enterprises providing services, training, volunteering and employment opportunities.

The Shooting Star Appeal aims to provide the relief of sickness by the provision and equipping of an integrated specialist cancer treatment facility, including a specific area dedicated to services for women, at Wrexham Maelor Hospital. The appeal provides services to young people and elderly people across Wales.

During the year of partnership, each charity will have access to the following benefits:
