A WREXHAM hospice is to raise a fine tune from a forthcoming concert.

Cor Godre’r Aran Choir, 2008 Llangollen International Eisteddfod winners along with musical director Eirian Owen, has agreed to perform a fundraising St David’s Day Celebration of Wales concert in aid of Nightingale House Hospice.

The event will take place on Thursday, February 26, at St Giles’ Parish Church, Wrexham.

They will be joined by internationally-renowned Aled Wyn Davies, solo tenor and Rhianwen Pugh, joint principal Harpist of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales.

Tickets cost £10 and are available from the income generation department at Nightingale House Hospice, Chester Road, Wrexham. Call (01978) 314292 for more information.

Nightingale House Hospice provides specialist palliative care services, free of charge, to patients and their families across a wide area stretching from Wrexham, Flintshire, East Denbighshire to Barmouth and the border towns including Oswestry and Whitchurch.

This year alone it will cost £2.5m to run the hospice – this equates to £7,000 per day.

Only 20% of this comes from statutory government sources. The hospice greatly relies on the generosity of the communities it serves.
