A WREXHAM Lager employee has seen out 'Dry January' - and raised over £2,000 for a very worthwhile cause in the process.

The challenge sees participants aim to complete the 31 days of January without drinking any alcohol for a total reset of the body and mind.

From better sleep and a mental health boost, to saving money and time - there's a whole lot to gain.

Wrexham Lager sales manager Joss Roberts was taking on the challenge in order to collect money for Nightingale House Hospice.

Through his fundraiser, he has managed to collect a total sum of £2,026.

Working at the brewery presented an even harder challenge for Joss when it came to staying alcohol free this month.

And if that wasn't tough enough, he even spent time with Wrexham cult hero Bootlegger - famous for his boozy shenanigans - during the course of the month!

Speaking after raising the money, Joss said: "A massive thank you to everyone who supported in anyway - whether it was a like, share or a donation - it's all made a huge difference and will help Nightingale House Hospice continue to offer the very best end of life care."


The Nightingale House Hospice team has thanked Joss for his efforts throughout the month.

They said: "We want to say a huge thank you to Joss. We are so grateful to Joss for his amazing fundraising efforts, as all the funds raised will go towards Nightingale House.

"Thank you Joss, and to all those who donated or supported. It's people like you who allow us to continue providing specialised care to those affected by life-limiting illnesses.

Joss has a close connection to the hospice, as his mother worked there for 16 years.

He's seen first-hand how important the care given here is, and that every penny raised is vital.
