A discount retailer in Wrexham town centre has raised over £1000 for a local hospice.
QD Stores, located on Hope Street, raised the funds for Nightingale House through sales of its five pence plastic carrier bags and decided to donate the money to a very worthy local cause chosen by the store team.
Nightingale House 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.
A total of £1,091 was raised in aid of the hospice.
Helen Foster, Commercial Director – QD Stores Group, said: “The sales from our 5p carrier bags have enabled us to provide much needed funds to local charities selected by our store teams.
“We endeavour to fundraise in as many ways as possible for both local and national charities and this has always been aided by the help and support of our customers.”
