A global financial services company with a ‘Centre of Excellence’ in Wrexham has pledged additional funds and volunteer hours in support of Nightingale House Hospice (NHH)’s modernisation project, and has committed to supporting NHH through 2020 – the local charity’s 25th anniversary year.
Work is underway on the modernisation of NHH, which includes, amongst other changes, relocating and restructuring the current daycare and rehabilitation facilities.
The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), based at Redwither Tower on Wrexham Industrial Estate, has donated £5,000 towards increasing NHH’s existing capacity for patients and their families. Volunteer work in the local community is set to raise a further £5,000 by the end of 2019, bringing the total raised to £10,000.
Simon Farrington, Managing Director, EMEA at DTCC, said: “Strong, healthy communities are essential for people to build stable and productive futures and that is why we partner with local organisations that focus on making a difference. The ability for our employees to support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts is important because we’re passionate about neighbours helping neighbours. We’re delighted to continue supporting NHH, especially during the next phase of its project, and look forward to seeing the final result.
Outreach services in the community and education facilities are also benefitting.
Debbie Barton, Hospice Corporate Partnerships Manager, said: “Over the past three years, DTCC has contributed more than £26,000 towards the care of patients and their families at NHH. We are very grateful to DTCC for all their efforts, including volunteering time at our Distribution Centre. They are genuinely making a difference.”
Jane McGrath, Head of Clinical and Patient Services at Nightingale House Hospice, said: “The facilities at NHH were built in 1995 and over the years services have changed. There is a growing demand for our services and by modernising our premises and expanding our work in the community, we will be well-positioned to increase patient numbers and deliver care for the future in the best possible environment.”
