The Deadpool star is daily making his name on the front page with yet another act of kindness for the Wrexham community.

Ryan Reynolds saves the day

Just a few days ago, a local Wrexham resident, who is also the single mother of her ten-year-old child, was surprised by Ryan’s act of kindness. Kayleigh Barton and his son had undergone a challenging year after the sudden death of her ex-partner and Keegan’s father, Adam Bradshaw.

Bradshaw was a native legend and a footballer for FC Queen Park, who died in September. His son Keegan is keeping his father’s soccer legacy alive among amateur clubs and has been a part of FC United of Wrexham since its formation in 2020.

Kayleigh created a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the futsal team of her son, FC United of Wrexham U12s. Hence, with the ongoing fundraiser, she was shocked to see that the Hollywood superstar had donated £1,600 to the cause.

“I’m lost for words, and over the moon. Thank you, Ryan, for putting a smile on the team’s face, if thank you is even enough. After I told Keegen, he screamed and went wild – saying ‘oh my gosh, has he really?” said Kayleigh.

It also shocked her son to see such a donation from the new owner. “Keegen is Wrexham’s number one fan. His Dad would be made up for him and bursting with pride,” she added.

Andrew Ruscoe, FC United of Wrexham’s founder and chairman, was also astounded when he learned about the news, “I never expected him to donate to it. Kayleigh said she’d start a GoFundMe page to raise the funds we needed to buy it. After a few hours of it being live, she rang me frantically saying Ryan Reynolds had donated £1,600.”
