Jobs created as Hope House Children’s Hospice opens a new store in Wrexham and another in Mold.
Two new stores in Mold and Wrexham will generate jobs and raise funds for Hope House Children’s Hospices. The charity will return to Mold while relocating its Wrexham shop from Charles Street to Island Green.
The shops will open in the autumn and recruitment has started to find managers and weekend sales assistants.
Head of Retail Angela Whelan said: “We are excited to be opening these two shops. Wrexham and Mold are important towns in terms of the families we provide care for and the generous support we receive from the communities.

Hydro Pool Refurbishment Project
Seriously ill local children will again enjoy the therapeutic properties of aquatic therapy thanks to a massive project to refurbish the hydro pool at Hope House Children’s Hospice.
The original pool, dating back to 1995, urgently needed updating, and the plant machinery was starting to fail.
Hope House physiotherapist Esme Turner said the refurbishment ensures the children can return to enjoying their pool experience.
“We offer many therapies, but aquatic therapy, which uses the natural buoyancy, heat and resistance of the water, is often the highlight of the children’s hospice stay,” explained Esme.

Nightingale Fundraisers Complete Inca Trail
Twenty Nightingale House fundraisers have completed a sponsored trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru. Raising a fantastic £100,000.
The trek of a lifetime, along the world`s most important archaeological find and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, had been planned three years ago but delayed because of the pandemic.
The trekkers left the Wrexham hospice on 1st July for Heathrow Airport and arrived in Cusco more than 30 hours later. Each of them was walking in memory of a loved one, including husbands, wives, parents and friends.
