hope-house-logoA group of ten Wrexham FC fans are putting their fitness to the test by taking on the Three Peaks Challenge on June 27th in aid of childrens charity Hope House. 

The team will be led by two long-standing fans who volunteer their time to Wrexham Football Club: Barry Jones a part-time referee with the reserve and ladies teams and Andy Pinkerton, a steward at Glyndwr University on match days. Both have supported Wrexham FC for longer than they remember and see this as an opportunity to raise vital funds for Hope House and to raise the profile of the Club in our community. 

Andy Pinkerton, leading the walk said: 

¢‚¬Å“The majority of the party have children, so it was a unanimous choice to support Hope House as we realise that all monies raised go to a great cause of supporting children and young people with life-limiting illnesses.¢‚¬ 

Hope House is Wrexham Supporters Trust chosen charity for the 2012/13 season. For every £250 that supporters invest in WSTs Community Share Offer: Our Club, Our Future, the Trust will donate a match ticket to Hope House. This donation will enable a child or young person to attend a match at the Glyndwr University Racecourse Ground. The investments made to date will enable an estimated 230 children and young people to watch Wrexham FC next season. 

Rachel Jones, Fundraiser for Hope House, said:  

¢‚¬Å“We are delighted to have the support this year of the Wrexham Supporters Trust and wish the 10 members completing the Three Peaks the very best of luck. It is a huge challenge and we are grateful to them not only for the money they will raise but also for all the time and training they have had to put in to complete a challenge like this. It is only through the generosity of people like them that we are able to keep our doors open.¢‚¬ 

The team will be distributing sponsorship forms to family and friends in advance of their challenge on June 27th. If you wish to sponsor Andy and Barrys team please contact Andy Pinkerton on 07950 944247 for further details.
