Rachel Jones, corporate fundraiser at Nightingale House said: “Thank you to everybody who took part and special thanks to all the staff at Tenpin for the support on the night, it was really fun.”
Nightingale House Hospice provides specialist palliative care services free-of-charge to patients and their families across a wide area stretching from Wrexham, Flintshire, East Denbighshire to Barmouth and the border towns including Oswestry and Whitchurch.
This year alone, it will cost £2.46 million to run the Hospice, this equates to £6,700 per day with only 19% coming from statutory government sources, the hospice therefore greatly relies on the generosity of the communities it serves.
