We need your support!

The Miners Rescue Station was purpose built, as required by the Coal Mines Act 1911, and was officially opened in November 1913 as a training centre for mine rescue teams. The Wrexham Miners Project is now working to preserve the building in memory of the brave people who trained here and to provide a cultural hub for the local community.

For many years, the building stood empty. Due to neglect and financial constraints, it is now in need of significant refurbishment. We are working to rebuild and renovate damaged parts of the building to house a museum, art studio and community rooms.

The Project has received valuable support from individuals, local businesses and government-funded bodies, but there is still a huge amount of work to be done. We need your help! Please get in touch if you would like to make a financial donation, volunteer your time or spread the word about our activities. Together, we can make a difference and leave a lasting legacy for our local community.

International Donors: Our donations are in UK pounds through Gofundme. You can donate by entering the amount you wish to donate in UK pounds though will be charged the equivalent of that amount in your own currency. Gofundme do not charge conversion fees.
