Up up and away…


Following the Balloon Festival in August, Clive Knowles, chairman of The British Ironwork Centre visited Nightingale House Hospice for a tour of their headquarters and to meet the trustee’s, including CEO Steve Parry.

During this visit, it was noted that there was a need for something bright & uplifting in the main foyer area where all visitors to the centre first arrive.

Clive Knowles, gifted this six foot long scrap metal balloon wall art piece, specially chosen & arranged for nightingale house’s newly refurbished reception area.

The inspiration for this piece, was indeed Oswestry’s first Hot Air Balloon Festival which raised an incredible £25k for the charity over the three day event.

Steve Parry (pictured) CEO of Nightingale House Hospice said “WOW! I never expected anything like this, it’s going to take pride of place in our newly refurbished reception”

Clive Knowles, Chairman of The British ironwork Centre said

“It was thoroughly a pleasure to support Nightingale House Hospice this year. A hugely valuable asset and vital service to the area. The work and support the Hospice provides is Incredible.”
