“Love Our Lottery”
Wrexham based hospice, Nightingale House, is sending love to a special group of people who have kept the heart of the hospice beating for many years.
Tracey Price, Lottery Manager at Nightingale House said: ‘At Nightingale House, we love our lottery. We love that it has been an integral part of the hospice for 26 years, raising over £500,000 last year alone, enough to run the hospice for 58 days.
The hospice recently conducted an online survey of lottery members to ask why they joined. The answers highlight why we Love our Lottery. They included:
“You cared for my dad in his last hours, I arrived to visit him 10 mins after he died. Your staff were incredible, I could tell they had looked after my dad so very well.”
“I played the normal lottery and decided I would prefer to play this lottery instead and support a great cause.”
If you’d like the chance to be a Nightingale House lottery winner and be in with the chance of winning their £2,500 weekly jackpot prize, you can join the lottery here.
Midnight Walk Returns
Nightingale House Hospice has announced the return of its popular Midnight Walk on Saturday, 25th June.
Head of Fundraising, Louise Aubrey said: “Prior to the pandemic, we hosted what we believed to be the final walk. However, after a £100,000 + shortfall in fundraising due to the pandemic, we felt it was the perfect time to bring this popular event back.
During the previous 13 midnight walk events, we have changed routes, distances, times and most famously T-shirt colours! This year will be no different and we are taking the bright colour theme to the next level!”
Registration is open now and is £15 per person. The fee includes an exclusive t-shirt to wear on the night, a Midnight Walk water bottle, and a tasty treat when you cross the line.
