We’ve recently held an auction fundraiser here at Ellison to raise money for our chosen charity, Nightingale House Hospice. The silent auction was held over 5 days and raised a huge £252.44!
There were a wide variety of items to bid on from a drone to a coffee table. Employees were instructed to secretly place bids on their desired items, with the highest bid winning. The auction proved a huge success and provided an opportunity to support Nightingale House Hospice. With only 20% of Nightingale’s funding coming from statutory sources, the hospice greatly rely on voluntary funding!
Holding charity events allows Ellison to support Nightingale’s work, whilst also being able to give back to the community we are part of. Nightingale provides specialist palliative care services, free of charge to patients and their families around the Wrexham area. Nightingale’s services include a 12-bed inpatient ward, a 15 patient daycare unit, an outpatient clinic, occupational therapy, complementary therapies, physiotherapy, an ambulance service and a range of bereavement support services.
Did you know about our next charity event? Over 40 members of the Ellison team are taking on the challenge of a 15-mile walk. If you would like to help us reach our £5000 target, we would be grateful of any sponsors through our Just Giving page.
