Story

North Wales Crusaders’ players, coaching staff, directors and sponsors will be travelling the distance from Wrexham to Mount Kilimanjaro during November to help raise money for charity partner Nightingale House.

With Nightingale House set to lose around £1.16m this year because of the pandemic and Crusaders unable to raise money for the charity through their Golf Day, attentions are now being turned to this fundraiser instead.

The charity and some of their supporters are planning to climb Kilimanjaro next year, but Crusaders wanted to organise a collective effort to travel the distance to the mountain in the meantime.

Whether people taking part check the number of steps they do each or go for a run, it’ll all count towards the ultimate goal and each player in Crusaders’ squad will be given a minimum distance to travel during November.

Crusaders chief executive Andy Moulsdale said: “It’s been a difficult year for everyone and Nightingale House are no exception to that.

“We’re very proud to support the charity and we dedicated our 2020 away shirt to Nightingale House, with a percentage of the sales being donated to the hospice.

“With challenging times still ahead for Nightingale House, we wanted to do something to continue our support for them and it’d be great to see as many people as possible get involved.”

About the charity

Nightingale House offers a wide range of facilities to local people and their families living with life-limiting illness. Patients come from Wrexham, Flintshire, Denbighshire and outlying areas. In 2024 it will cost £4,900,513 million to run the Hospice - this equates to nearly £13,389 per day.
