Clubbing together to help sick children in Wrexham

A Wrexham club has shown its community spirit with a £3,620 donation to buy specialist equipment to help babies born with jaundice and their parents.

Mathew Evans, general manager of ATIK on Brook Street, nominated the children’s ward at Maelor Hospital to receive the money to fund a phototherapy light.

Mathew said: “The donation is from our company’s Echo Trust charity to give something back to our local community. We hold regular collections at the club and our customers are always generous. We wanted this local cause to benefit because of its amazing work with children and their families.”

Becky Morris, ward manager at the children’s ward, said: “We are extremely grateful for this kind donation. We will use the money to purchase a state of the art phototherapy light for babies who require treatment to relieve conditions of newborn jaundice. The equipment allows parents to be close to their baby whilst they are undergoing treatment which enhances bonding and comfort.

 “Thank you to everyone who donated towards ATIK and the Echo Trust’s fundraising initiatives to make this possible.”

ATIK is part of The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of late night bars and clubs, which employs 3000 people across its 55 venues. Since 2002 when Deltic set up the Echo Trust it has raised more than £2.5 million to grant awards to local children’s charities and children’s hospitals.
