Hotel jumble sale raises almost £2,000 for Nightingale House Hospice for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

A Wrexham-based construction firm has raised almost £2,000 for Nightingale House Hospice by holding a jumble sale.

Knights Construction Group, in conjunction with a Llangollen Hotel, held a two-day public sale at the historic venue back in March, with all furniture items throughout the hotel being made available for locals to buy.

All proceeds raised were donated to Nightingale House Hospice.

The sale proved very popular over the two days and items sold included beds, wardrobes, chairs, sofas, bar stools, crockery, kitchen equipment and outdoor furniture amongst others with the hotel now closed for a full building renovation.

Knights’ Construction Manager, Gwyn Davies said he was delighted at the response to the sale and was very happy to finally be able to hand over the cheque to Nightingale House.

He said: “We’ve of course been planning ahead for the renovation of the Royal Hotel, and there was that much furniture and equipment left in the building that we thought it would be worth putting it all to good use.

“So, we talked about it and decided that Nightingale House, a great local hospice in Wrexham would be a very worthy cause to raise funds for. On behalf of Knights and the Royal Hotel, we’re delighted that we could help in some small way.”

Nightingale House Hospice provides specialist palliative care services, completely free-of-charge, to patients and their families across a wide area stretching from Wrexham, Flintshire and East Denbighshire to Barmouth and the border towns including Oswestry and Whitchurch.
