A pub will play host to a Father’s Day fundraiser to help the ongoing campaign to save Plas Madoc Leisure Centre.
The music-themed afternoon organised by the Splash Community Trust will be held at The Duke of Wellington in nearby Acrefair on Sunday (June 15), when local band The New Foos will be playing from 3pm.
Trust director Greg Ogden said there will also be an array of ‘fantastic’ prizes on offer during the event, which is the latest money-spinner to be held as volunteer-run group aims to reopen the popular facility later this summer.
Greg, who lives in Trevor, said: “I’d like to thank the pub’s landlady, Shauny, who as well as hosting the event is supplying a bottle of whiskey for the raffle. There are plenty more fantastic prizes to be won, including a meal for two at The Cornmill in Llangollen.
“Our top prize is a night for two at the Wild Pheasant in Llangollen in a suite with its own hot-tub, which also includes a three-course dinner and breakfast the following morning.”
Greg added: “There will also be a bouncy castle and face-painting for the children – and the adults too – as well as a lamb roast and barbecue, hot dogs and and a sweets stall. Throw in the music and there will be something for everyone.
“The weather’s looking good too, so it promises to be a great afternoon for a brilliant cause.”
The Splash Community Trust is also holding a race night at the Old Black Horse in Rhostyllen on Friday, June 27, from 8pm. To sponsor a race or buy a horse for the night, contact Jenny Miller on 07921 659099.
