Complementary medicine fundraiser for Nightingale House Hospice
July 27 2015
Reflexology, massage and acupuncture treatments will be offered in return for donations to Nightingale House Hospice at a Wrexham complementary therapy clinic open event.
Glyndŵr University is hosting a three-day fundraiser in the clinic at its Mold Road campus from Wednesday August 19 to Friday August 21.
Patients will be asked for donations from £10 upwards with all proceeds going directly to the hospice.
Treatments on offer include acupuncture, facial acupuncture, back massage, aromatherapy back and neck massage and reflexology.
They will be delivered by students on the university’s and degree programmes.
Paul Battersby, senior lecturer in complementary therapy, said: “Glyndŵr University is passionate about using its expertise to support organisations in the region and we’re very proud to be able to support Nightingale House Hospice.
“We hope as many people as possible will pop in for a treatment as we want to raise as much money as we can for the organisation, which provides such an important service to the community of North East Wales.
“The clinic here at Glyndŵr University is a fully working complementary healthcare clinic, normally open to the public every day during term times, which allows our students to receive valuable training for their chosen career.”
Chris Andrews, area fundraiser for Nightingale House, said: "We are very grateful to all the team at Glyndŵr for their support. Their expertise in complementary therapy are sure to make the event a fantastic success and we are really looking forward to seeing a great turn out on the day.
“Support like this from the university is absolutely vital to the hospice. This year alone we need to find £2.2 million to keep the hospice running, so fundraising efforts like this are hugely appreciated."
The clinic will be open from 9am to 3pm on Wednesday August 19; 4pm to 8pm on Thursday August 20 and 9am to 3pm on Friday August 21.
Appointments can be made in advance by calling 01978 293403.
The complementary therapy clinic is located in the Crispin Lane building of Glyndŵr University’s Wrexham campus, adjacent to Techniquest Glyndŵr.
Visitors are advised to use the Crispin Lane entrance to the university when attending the clinic, where parking is available outside the clinic building.
