PORTABLE Foods on the Wrexham Industrial Estate is celebrating its 10th anniversary by fundraising for local causes.
£524 has been raised for the Bereavement Services at Wrexham Maelor Hospital and an NCH project in Longfields.
Louise Bayliss-Chapman, project manager at NCH Longfields said: “NCH Wrexham Young Carers are delighted with the donation the employees at Portable Foods in Wrexham have given to us. The money is going to help fund the conversion of the on-site garage into a young carers’ club room. The children and young people will really benefit by this improvement to the site. It will be a place they can call their own. Thank you.”
A spokesman for Wrexham Maelor Hospital said: “We are grateful to receive this donation to benefit the Bereavement Services at the Wrexham Maelor Hospital. We provide help, advice and support for patients and relatives. Donated money is used to improve our services to the bereaved by providing furnishings and comforts in maternity, for parents following the loss of their baby, for our bereavement office relatives’ room and to purchase information and prayer cards to bring comfort and this traumatic time.”
Last month 280 people attended the anniversary dinner held at Lion Quays, Moreton.
Later in the year Portable Foods will also be presenting Gold Memorial Trophies and organising family factory visits. There will also be the opportunity for employees for the remainder of the year to access match funding to raise more money for other charities.
