Wrexham Hospice receives donation to help continue its services during pandemic
A hospice in Wrexham has continued providing essential services throughout the coronavirus pandemic thanks to the ScottishPower Foundation.
Nightingale House Hospice, based-in Chester Road, Wrexham was reliant on its popular retail stores, cafes, and charity events to fund its day-to-day running costs, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, since lockdown restrictons began in March last year the hospice has seen its revenue streams grind to a halt.
The charity originally received a grant of £25,000 from the ScottishPower Foundation to develop an art therapy program, the grant will also cover essential expenses and the launch of a food delivery service, allowing the team to support 250 households.
Thanks to the donation the hospice will be able to continue to deliver its services including grief support amid the pandemic by offering virtual sessions and support groups in place of its in-person services, with a program available to children and young adults.
Nightingale House hospice services are available to everyone living with a life-limiting illness in its’ catchment area, stretching from Wrexham, Flintshire, and East Denbighshire to Barmouth and the border towns including Oswestry and Whitchurch.
