Flintshire chemicals plant helps hospice with bedroom revamp

Wrexham-based Nightingale House Hospice has received the cash boost from Synthite, a chemical manufacturer in Mold, to support the upgrade of its patients’ bedrooms.

The money will fund four room refurbishments, which include the installation of new curtains, bedding materials, privacy curtains, and scatter cushions.

Synthite was awarded the £2,000 by its parent company Tennants Consolidated Ltd, to donate to a local charity.

And it follows the firm’s 2018 donation to the hospice, which was used to transform a bathroom into a wet room facility for its patients.

Debbie Barton, corporate partnerships manager at Nightingale House, said: “Synthite’s continued support is fantastic news for us, as it will ensure our bedrooms are modern and fit for purpose.

“The refurbishment will update the look and feel of the bedrooms, which will in turn benefit our patients, who come from Wrexham,Flintshire, North Shropshire, East Denbighshire and parts of Gwynedd.

“We require more than £3 million per year to run our day to day operations, and the business community plays a big part in helping us raise this amount.”

Sarah Jones, assistant accountant at Synthite, said: “Having seen the positive effect our previous support for Nightingale House has had, donating for the second consecutive year was an easy decision.

“I’m pleased that the revamp of four bedrooms will be taken care of by the donation, as it will help provide more comfort to patients and their families with minimal impact on hospice funds. 

“I’d urge any business looking to become involved with a charity to consider the hospice’s vital work, which goes above and beyond to support people.”

Nightingale House provides specialist palliative care services for local people and their families affected by life-threatening or life-limiting illness.

Services include a 12-bed inpatient ward, a daycare unit, 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.

Synthite has operated from Alyn Works, Denbigh Road, Mold, since the 1950s. It employs 120 people.

Its main product is formaldehyde, a basic building block of the chemical industry. Formaldehyde is used in the manufacture of a vast array of everyday goods, ranging from furniture, floorboards and interior trim for motor vehicles.

"Im pleased that the revamp of four bedrooms will be taken care of by the donation, as it will help provide more comfort to patients and their families with minimal impact on hospice funds. "
