We all know about the incredibly important service provided by Nightingale House Hospice – both throughout the Wrexham area, and wider North East Wales.

Recently, officers from our housing team helped to organise refurbishment work on part of the hospice, providing facilities such as an adjustable sink and improved toilet in one of the hospice’s washrooms.

We wanted to thank contractors who donated time, resources and effort to the refurbishment work, with items donated including storage cupboards, flooring, paint, plumbing fixtures and the new equipment.


The work took place under our Houseproud scheme, which helps owners co-ordinate work to their homes and puts them in touch with reputable and reliable contractors.

The contractors involved were D Nixon Plumbing; Clos-o-Mat Ltd; Polyflor Ltd; Colour Supplies and Travis Perkins, all of whom donated supplies, materials and equipment as well as their time and expertise.

Synthite of Mold also donated £2,000 towards the bathroom.

Cllr Joan Lowe, Lead Member for Health and Adult Social Care, said: “I’d like to thank all those contractors who worked alongside staff from our Houseproud scheme and the team at Nightingale House in order to provide these welcome additions and improvements to the washroom.

“Nightingale House does incredible work in our community and further afield, and we’re very pleased to be able to support them.”
