Two of our members, Ryan Lewis and Gary Parker, walked up Snowdon on 29 June to raise £340 for the Trust. They joined fans from clubs across the country at an event organised by the Wrexham Supporters Trust to celebrate the Welsh club’s 150th anniversary.
which Mickey Thomas rifled in the famous free-kick against Arsenal in 1992 that helped send the Gunners out of the FA Cup.
Both our walkers said it was a fantastic day, but they were glad to sink into a hot bath and then bed after a gruelling climb.
Wrexham is a 100% fan-owned club, and their fans have done the walk for the last three years to raise funds for their own club. This year, the Wrexham Trust wanted to celebrate the club’s anniversary with fans from other clubs, and give those fans the chance to raise money for their own organisations.
The day not only brought fans together, but underlined the power of supporter organisations. We’d like to thank our friends at the Wrexham Trust for inviting us along to a great day. And thanks, too, to THFC for donating two shirts to our walkers so they could show their colours.
• In the last 18 months the Trust has made huge strides as an independent and effective voice for Spurs fans. To continue working for you, the Trust needs a steady flow of funds. If you can do something to help raise funds, please get in touch with us and we’d be happy to help you organise. Gary and Ryan have set the standard – who’s next?
