RIELLO UPS POWERS HOSPICE’S HOT AIR BALLOON FUNDRAISER
Leading manufacturer of uninterruptible power supplies Riello UPS is supporting a palliative care hospice’s exciting new fundraising campaign.
The Wrexham-based business is proud to back local charity Nightingale House’s “Build a Balloon” initiative, where companies and local people can sponsor panels on a hot air balloon specially commissioned as part of the hospice’s 25th anniversary celebrations.
Like many charitable organisations, the coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on Nightingale House’s fundraising, forcing the cancellation of many of its regular face-to-face events and activities. It came up with the “Build a Balloon” concept as an alternative to generate much-needed income to support its wide range of essential care services.
Supporting the North East Wales community, Nightingale House provides specialist palliative care services to people living with life-limiting illness and their families.
Its services include a 12-bed inpatient ward, a 15-patient day services unit and an outpatient clinic, along with occupational and complementary therapies and physiotherapy.
Leo Craig, Managing Director of Riello UPS, commented: “Many of our team and their families or friends have first-hand experience of Nightingale House’s vital and amazing work.
“Despite the massive challenge of COVID-19, which has had a huge impact on their fundraising activities, they’ve always been there to support loved ones when they need it the most.
“Everyone at Riello UPS is proud to support Nightingale House’s exciting new ‘Build a Balloon’ campaign, which will help the hospice carry on making a big difference throughout our local community.”
Sarah Povey, Community and Events Fundraiser for Nightingale House, added: “Our truly unique ‘Build a Balloon’ campaign was put together to help raise crucial funds which enable us to provide care for the most vulnerable people in our community.
“We are asking members of the public to sponsor a panel on our hot air balloon, so they can be part of something special… something exciting… and it’s a great way of recording a happy memory that will stay with them and Nightingale House for years to come.
“The campaign also allows corporate partners to get involved by sponsoring their own panel on our Nightingale House balloon which will feature their company logo.
“We are incredibly grateful to Riello UPS for their fantastic support, this venture would not be possible without their backing and we are excited for this magnificent spectacle to take to the skies this summer.”
