Helping Hospice Hit Heights With Balloon Fundraiser
Riello UPS is delighted to become a corporate supporter of Nightingale House’s new fundraising initiative.
“Build a Balloon” is the centrepiece of the Wrexham-based hospice’s 25th anniversary celebrations.
With COVID-19 having hit them – like all charities – hard, the campaign offers an innovative way of generating much-needed income. It involves creating a hot air balloon that will take to the skies over the coming months, with businesses and local people sponsoring panels on the flying fundraising contraption.
“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.”
- Leo Craig, Managing Director of Riello UPS
“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.”
