University delighted to host annual hospice Christmas Fair
Glyndŵr University is delighted to be supporting Wrexham hospice Nightingale House by hosting its 2015 Christmas Fair at the Catrin Finch Centre.
The event will feature craft, jewellery and gift stalls, children’s activities and even Santa’s grotto. Admission is a minimum 50p donation, with all proceeds going to the hospice.
2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the hospice, and the year has been packed full of celebratory and fundraising events, including special concert featuring the three Welsh tenors, which took place in the William Aston Hall in September.
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.
With only a small amount of funding coming from statutory sources, the hospice relies heavily on donations to continue its vital work – in 2014, it cost £2.65 million to run the Hospice, equating to around £7200 per day.
The Nightingale House Christmas Fair takes place on Saturday 14 November, from 11am. Visit Nightingale House’s website for more details about the event, and the work of the hospice.
