Uk to Romania

Nightingales is aiming to raise £5000.

The money needed to replace the heating system at the house where our disabled adults live, and cover the costs for winter 2020-23 both at their house and then with any extra money raised to cover the heating at our day centre.

The new system, an environmentally friendly pellet burner, will then be more economical for the house, and provide better heat. At the moment only 3 out of the 7 seven radiators are warm during the winter, which can get as cold as minus 20 degrees! (That is very cold, believe us!)
