Reindeer Run

Join primary schools across Calderdale this December for Overgate’s brand new fundraising event!

Overgate has teamed up with Santa this Christmas to bring you a fun-filled fundraising event but just like the big man, we can’t take on the festive season alone! We need reindeer recruits to get active this December and take on The Overgate Reindeer Run to support local families spending their last Christmas together.

How does it work?

Our Reindeer Run is a sponsored walk or run just for primary schools in our community. You can choose the date, distance and any location available to you perhaps a playground, school hall, field or local park! Once you’ve decided we’ll supply you with everything you need transform your school in to a rush of reindeer:

Reindeer antlers & nose for every child
A Santa suit for the teacher to keep the little helpers in check
Sponsorship envelopes for the pupils to collect money from family and friends
A certificate for each reindeer recruitWe can even visit your school to tell the children the difference their support will make to Overgate this Christmas.

For more information or to sign up to take part in our Reindeer Run please contact our Fundraising Team on 01422 387121 or email us.

Study Write is a tuition service based at various schools throughout Calderdale offering support to primary and secondary school children. The extra-curricular activities of English, Maths & Verbal Reasoning at the schools they serve aid the children immensely in their studies. Study Write Tuition is also available on a Saturday morning and Monday evening ensuring that children and young people alike further progress in their studies supported in a fun, positive and nurturing environment.
Vicky Queenan, Founder and Lead Teacher of Study Write Tuition told us:
‘We loved supporting Overgate Hospice last year and can’t thank the Hospice enough for the amazing role they do to support people in our community.  We love the idea of supporting Overgate again and think this is a great fundraiser for the children of Calderdale’.
