RainbowBiz Limited will be “Celebrating Volunteers With Pride” by holding a free cinema screening and Q and A event at Theatr Clwyd thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.
After successfully applying to the Big Lottery Fund’s Celebrate programme RainbowBiz Limited, a social enterprise in Flintshire has been awarded £1893.00, which will be used to host an event at 6pm, Saturday, 4th March, 2017 at Theatr Clwyd in Mold.
On the day all corners of the community are invited to come together to Celebrate Volunteers With Pride. Volunteers at RainbowBiz are an important part of the local area because without volunteering many people would not be able to gain skills in new areas, feel good about themselves, be a part of the community and put on so many amazing events in Flintshire, for example Flintshire Pride, Diversity 2017 and the RainbowBiz Mind, Body, Spirit Festival.
Wrexham Football Club and Calon FM are delighted to announce that Wrexham AFC’s football commentary will be live on the Wrexham based community radio station for the 2017-2018 season and beyond.
The football club has not renewed its long standing agreement with EFL Digital meaning that ‘Wrexham PlayerHD’ will close at the end of this season. We will advise current subscribers about their subscriptions shortly.
The Media Team’s commentary will be free to air next season on Calon 105fm, Calon FM’s app, the tunein app and online via the club website. We will be covering every game, home and away with our team of experienced commentators.
Carl Hogan, Wrexham Football Club Media Manager said, “I wanted to move our commentary over to Calon FM last season, but our contract with EFL Digital didn’t allow me to do so. I’m really happy to finally get this over the line, I believe our fantastic commentaries deserve a wider audience, and I believe being on the Calon platform will certainly deliver that.
“Also, I believe our commentaries should be free of charge for our supporters, which is why I have been working so hard to make this to happen. Next season will signify more choice for Wrexham commentary listeners as we go head to head in the free-to-air market. I urge all supporters to get on board with our new commentary partner Calon FM and, support our commentary sponsors and advertisers.”

Starting from Llwyn Isaf at 10.30pm, the event sees women take on either a 3.5 or 6 mile walk while turning the streets of Wrexham into a sea of pink.
