Wakefield Hospice fundraising Groups
The history of Wakefield Hospice Fundraising Groups is amazing as it is these groups that fundraised to help build Wakefield Hospice over 25 years ago.
Originally Fundraising Groups were set up in; St Johns, Wrenthorpe, St Austins, Calder Grove and Durkar, Outwood, Horbury, Crofton, Oulton and Woodlesford, Bretton, Ossett, Sandal, Lupset and Thornes, Ryhill, Rothwell, Morley, Lofthouse, Rothwell, Stanley, Walton, the Hospice Group and the Four Villages – Netherton, Middlestown, Midgley, Overton and Lupset & Thornes. The Fundraising Groups helped to raise funds for the capital appeal to build the hospice.
Some of these Groups continue to fundraise by hosting events, bucket collections in local supermarkets, summer and winter fairs and fashion shows to name just a few.
Over the years, the Groups of Wakefield Hospice have collectively raised over £3,000,000 which is an amazing contribution.
We currently have groups in: Calder Grove and Durkar, Morley and East Ardsley, Ossett, Sandal, Wrenthorpe St. Johns and Outwood .
Wakefield Hospice needs you!
Our Groups are always looking for new members who can offer a little bit of their time in their local area, to raise the profile of the groups and also contribute to their fundraising activities over the year. If there is not a group near you we would be more than happy to discuss supporting you to open a new group.
