Home Instead Gives Back At Christmas

Home Instead Wrexham and Flintshire has made a generous donation to Nightingale House Hospice in Wrexham on behalf of their employees this Christmas.  

With the usual Christmas activities taking a different course this year, the local home care company decided that they would like to support a local charity after what has been a very tough year.

Home Instead’s Community Engagement Lead, Heather Collin said: “We recognise that many charities will have missed a lot of fundraising opportunities this year as a result of COVID-19 restrictions so we wanted to contribute in some way to that shortfall.  We always do something at Christmas time to help out the local community so this year and when we asked our staff to get involved and vote for the cause that was closest to their hearts, Nightingale House Hospice was the overwhelming winner due to the fantastic work that they do here in Wrexham.” 

Home Instead’s initial plan was to donate £5 to the charity on behalf of each CAREGiver that the company employs.  This came to just under £300, but in the true spirit of Christmas, business owner Matthew Murray-James, decided he would round the donation up to £500.

Mr Murray James said: “Some of our clients, past and present, have spent time at Nightingale House and they are extremely well thought of by our CAREGivers and their families.  Their services are vital to the local community and as a local business that also cares for vulnerable people we wanted to show our support. We hope that our contribution will help in some way to relieve the challenges that they have faced this year.”
