Six Wrexham eye care experts laced up their running shoes and took to the streets to raise £500 for Nightingale House Hospice.

Teammates Nimra, Zahra, Rosslyn, Sophie, Amie and Lisa of Specsavers in Wrexham took part in the hospice’s 4km colour run earlier this month, with backing from their colleagues and loved ones.

They successfully navigated bubble pits and embraced powder paint colour explosions to cross the finish line together. The hospice, which provides specialist palliative care services in Wrexham and beyond, set up the charity challenge course around Bangor-On-Dee.

A word from the store director

Gemma Harris, store director at Specsavers in Wrexham, said: ‘I’m very proud of the team for rallying together and going the extra mile – or two and a half in this case – to support the Nightingale hospice.

‘It is a vital service in our local area and many of us know people who have been supported in the most difficult of times by its fantastic team.’

Nightingale House Hospice provides services for individuals living with a diagnosis of a life-limiting illness, and their families. This year, it must raise £3,059,495 to continue to provide its free and vital services.
