Nightingale House Hospice exists purely to help people. People with life-limiting illnesses and their families. We help them cope, provide education and try to fulfil their lives in the best way possible. We also offer support to grieving relatives and help them come to terms with the loss of a loved one. And we do it 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, 365-days a year.
Our services are provided free of charge to anyone who needs it. We get some funding from the Government but we couldn't manage to give our patients such a wonderful service without our supporters and staff. There's a fantastic in-house fundraising team, who work tirelessly to dream up novel new ways of bringing us much-needed funds to keep us afloat.
One of our recent fundraising events was a brilliantly funny men-only 3-mile sponsored drag walk at Eagles Meadow, and we co-sponsored the Wrexham Food Festival, which was a roaring success. And later on this year, we're holding a Spring Ball, and Summer Fair to name just a few from our busy schedule.
We've also been chosen as the local charity for this year's Etape Cymru - a gruelling 90-mile bike ride around Wrexham that takes in the Horseshoe Pass and the Panorama. Definitely one for experienced cyclists only! It's free to enter but you will need to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship money.
If you'd like to help but can't commit to the time to enter one of our events, there are a number of simple ways you can contribute. There's the Hospice Lottery, where you could hit the jackpot to the tune of £2500 for just a £1 stake. It's simple to enter too - just set up a standing order, send a cheque or, in some cases, pay directly out of your salary.
You could also pay a visit to one of the Hospice's 5-charity shops located across Wrexham, Buckley and Flint. Offering a wide-selection of quality clothing, furniture, electrical goods and bric-a-brac, you never what bargains you might discover on its shelves and rails. And of course, you can donate any of your own unwanted goods to the shops. Big or small, it doesn't matter. As long as it's good quality, we'd be delighted to take it off your hands.
