Midday Mile

Wrexham Industrial Estate, Wrexham

11th July 2012

Prior to the official opening of Wrexham Industrial Estate Access Road, the Southern Section was handed over to Nightingale House Hospice who organised a “Midday Mile” event. Notifications were sent out to industrialists and local schools inviting people to complete a one mile walk along a section of the new road; participants were requested to donate £1 to the charity.

Ivor Goodsite (Dianne Bithell) was asked by the Estate’s contractors Birse Civils Ltd to take part, and managed to raise £250 in sponsorship by completing the event.
