There’s a wide variety of sporting groups in Wrexham, offering training on sports such as football, rugby, boxing, athletics, tennis and many more.

Are you a member of one of these many community sporting groups? Maybe you’re involved in running one?

If so, don’t miss out on the chance to get some extra funding, which could help out with everything from equipment to training.


Applications for the second round of 2018 Community Chest funding is now open.

The first round, which closed at the end of April, saw more than £12,000 given to local groups..

Groups can apply for up to £1,500 per year.

Cllr Andrew Atkinson, Lead Member for Youth Services and Anti-Poverty, with responsibility for Leisure, said: “There are a lot of good sports and athletics groups out there which do excellent work in their community.

“The Community Chest is there to help those clubs get the extra resources they need. Those involved should make sure they don’t miss out.”
