North East Wales Mind
Eagles Meadow currently supports North East Wales Mind through its new Hozah: Autopay car park payment system.
One per cent of the revenue generated through Hozah: Autopay is donated to North East Wales Mind, a Mold-based organisation which supports people in Wrexham and Flintshire.
North East Wales Mind provides information, counselling, talking therapies, self-management training and wellbeing activities to help people recover from mental health problems and stay emotionally friendly.
For more information on Hozah and how to sign up for the new payment method, visit www.hozah.com
Eagles Meadow will further support North East Wales Mind through its 2021 Santa’s Grotto. There will be no charge for children visiting Santa or for any of the gifts but instead visitors will be offered a chance to make a donation to the charity.
