A group of hospice nurses will be leading the way when they take part in the return of the popular Midnight Walk fundraising event in Wrexham later this month.

The Nightingale House Hospice nurses are taking part, along with the community, to raise vital funds for the refurbishment of the in-patient ward.

Starting at Llwyn Isaf, Wrexham, on Saturday, June 25, all are welcome, including children aged 12 and over who are accompanied by an adult over 18.

The hospice was unable to celebrate its 25-year anniversary in 2020, due to the pandemic but hopes people will join the Midnight Walk and celebrate now that they can all get together again.

The event has returned this year after many requests from the community and those taking part will be able to take a trip down memory lane and light up the streets of Wrexham once again.

Organisers Sarah Povey and Sam Amis from the hospice said: "The Midnight Walk is all about bringing people together to share one amazing experience and raise lots of money for patient care services.

"Our hospice nurses are incredible and work tirelessly all year round caring for our patients and their families. We would like to take this opportunity to not only thank them for supporting this event but for everything they do."

Nurses Lynne and Susan added: "We wanted to take part in the Midnight Walk to help raise valuable funds for our inpatient unit. The ward is a compassionate environment ready to support those in our local community and its refurbishment will be a blessing to provide our patients and their families with a more up to date environment for their care needs."

Nightingale House Hospice care is already second to none but with the help of the Midnight Walkers, facilities can be further enhanced and bring into the hospice the most up-to-date equipment available.

The in-patient ward will be improved with the introduction of new therapeutic interventions centred around mindfulness and colour therapy, creating an oasis of calm and care in the new facility.

Nurses would also like to thank all those in the community for their unwavering support for the hospice. Thanks to its supporters, the hospice can continue to provide services and care to those living with life-limiting illnesses.
