THE team at a Wrexham business is underway with a year of fundraising.

Gav Evans, director at J. E. Construction Ltd, and his wife Shaz, have chosen to support Hope House children's hospices.

They will be doing the Ice Bath Challenge every day in March to raise money for Hope House and Ty Gobaith. Taking it on as a family, they have aimed for 15 minutes submersion a day in the ice bath in their garden.

The couple wanted to support a local cause and Hope House is one close to their hearts. There are 70 families currently living in Wrexham that are receiving care and support from Hope House hospices.

This could be either through respite, end of life care or bereavement support. The majority of Hope House fundraising comes from people in the community like Gav and Shaz, doing challenges and holding events. So far they have raised almost £700.

Looking ahead, members of staff at J. E. Construction will be taking on the Three Peaks challenge, as well as other events and fundraisers.
