Aico in the Community continues to support local charities with Nightingale House Hospice being the latest.

As part of Aico’s Corporate Social Responsibility, Aico show continued commitment and support to the local community, with the aim being to build relationships with local community groups and charitable organisations and assist by offering volunteering opportunities to staff.

Aico offers and encourages staff members to take time out of their normal working day to volunteer and help within the community and every staff member is given one day per year for volunteering activities. Luke Allwood-Reid, Clare Polden and Ella Shail did just that and volunteered their time to help Nightingale Hospice.

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

Their services include a 12-bed inpatient ward, a 15 patient daycare unit, an outpatient clinic, occupational therapy, complementary therapies, physiotherapy including a hydrotherapy pool and an ambulance service. A range of bereavement support services are also offered including a specialist service for children and young adults.

Jo Kearns, Volunteer Manager at Nightingale Hospice commented “The recruitment of volunteers represents a perennial challenge for the Nightingale House retail team, so when Aico contacted our hospice to offer their support we welcomed them with open arms. The Aico team were an absolute joy to work with, they took time out to help sort through donations at our Donation Centre on Whitegate Industrial estate and it’s great to see businesses being so proactive in the community. Their hard work has lessened the workload for our busy retail team, which is massively appreciated – thank you so much.”
