Our Friends Groups are active members of our local community who act as wonderful ambassadors in communicating the work of the Hospice as well as coordinating fundraising activities and community events in aid of the Hospice.
Here are our current Friends Groups operating in Calderdale:
Thank you to all of our Friends Groups for your continued dedication and support over the years. Your commitment is truly valued.
We are always looking for new Friends Groups in your area. Do you have a skill that you would like to use or develop? Would you like to meet new, like-minded people? And above all, would you like to help raise money for a great cause?
If so, then a Friends Group may be for you! There is no fixed format to the groups, all that is needed is a group of people (it doesn’t matter how many) who can get together, raise vital funds for Overgate Hospice and have fun at the same time.
How you raise the money is up to you – it can be through coffee mornings, car boot sales, quiz nights, dinner dances or collections at supermarkets – the opportunities are endless!
We can provide you with the support you will need to start your Friends Group and are on hand to answer any questions.
If you would like to set-up a fundraising Friends Group in your area please contact our Volunteer Services Coordinator on 01422 379151 or email us for more information or to arrange a time to discuss your ideas.
