Hosting your own Big Brew is easy! Simply gather friends, family, or colleagues, get the kettle on, and enjoy each other's company.
Once you’ve signed up, we’ll be here to support you with your Big Brew plans, and you’ll receive your exclusive Big Brew Fundraising Pack in time for the big day.
Your pack will be filled with ideas and resources to make your Big Brew a fantastic day and help you raise as much money as possible.

Please join us and let’s brew up to make a BIG difference to our local hospice.

"The Kingston Mills site on Hopwood Lane in Halifax has been operational since 1900 and has developed into a 4-acre 24/7 manufacturing unit. For most of its history the site produced sweets with the 'Riley’s Toffee' chimney becoming somewhat of a local landmark, which many locals will recognise. In 1992 this longstanding site became a Mcvitie’s factory, producing a variety of cakes & flapjacks, including delicious cakes for the royal family stretching back to the nineteenth century. Around the site we have highlighted our great heritage and ensure it’s something that we recognise daily.
Within our colleagues, multiple people have accessed Overgate Hospice over the years for support and help with loved ones. This is why we have chosen to be a sponsor for ‘The Big Brew’ to help recognise the great work Overgate does, not only for those within the hospice, but the community as well.
Mcvitie’s is part of the pladis family which encompasses brands such as Jacobs, Godiva and Ulker manufacturing all across the world! Within the UK we hold five additional sites which make all of our family known products."
