Mother Goose Nursery in Penley raises £400 for Nightingale House Hospice with online raffle

A PENLEY nursery has raised an incredible £400 for Nightingale House Hospice.

The Mother Goose Nursery, Love Cottages, ABC Nursery and Zip World in Blaenau Ffestiniog, joined forces to raise funds for the Wrexham charity through an online raffle.

Sarah Love, manager of Mother Goose Nursery and Love Cottages, said: “We are so proud of the parents, friends and families of our nursery, who did the raffle through first donating on the just fiving page and then entering the raffle, which was drawn on September 1.

“The lady who won the wonderful prize, which was a weekend break in Snowdonia in one of our beautiful Love Cottages, plus two tickets to enjoy the new ride, the Forest Coaster at Zip world, was over the moon.

“Nightingale House is very close to so many people here at the nursery and we wanted to do something to help them raise some much needed funding in these difficult times, where normal fundraisers cannot go ahead due to Covid-19.”

Ms Love came up with the idea to do something online, where there would be no need to have a big group of people meeting up.

She added: “It worked brilliantly and I’m so grateful to everyone who took part and donated helping so much toward raising the funds for the hospice.

“I’m looking forward to coming up with other ideas to help Nightingale House in the future.”
