Fundraising for Us

Wakefield Hospice receives a lot of support from the local community, from companies, groups and individuals who take time to fundraise for patient care.

Whether you wish to organise your own event, take on a personal challenge or fundraise at work, the fundraising team is on hand to offer guidance and support.

If you’re fundraising in memory of a loved one, please tell us their name so we can acknowledge this. If your event is one of several ways you’re raising money, or a number of people are raising money, you may also wish to set up a Tribute Fund to record and share how much has been raised overall.

If you have an event that you would like to tell us about please let us know via the event form.

Nina Burkinshaw, whose mum Geraldine was cared for at Wakefield Hospice, decorated her house for Christmas with festive lights and a huge inflatable Santa, with Santa and Grinch posing for photos. Our thanks go to Nina and everyone who visited the snowy scene in the run-up to Christmas and made a donation in aid of the hospice.

 Drive by Cake Sale

Sisters Ellie, Emily and Alicia from Ossett held a 1940s-themed drive-by bake sale which raised £430. Ellie says, 'We raised a little money for my grandad, John Whiteley. He was a loving man with a very generous soul. Throughout this pandemic it is quite hard to keep a smile and we thought we would cheer the neighbours up by providing cakes and to support the hospice which is close to our hearts.' Thank you to everyone who supported this fantastic initiative! 

PDS Golf Day

PDS Design & Build raised a fantastic £5,724 at the firm's Golf Day held to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Thank you to all the staff, clients and friends who took part and supported Wakefield Hospice. The funds raised will help provide the best possible care for patients and their loved ones.

Special thanks to the two young ambassadors who helped make the event such a huge success.
