Supporting Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice
It is our privilege to work with Huddersfield based children’s hospice, Forget Me Not and over the years we have helped raise funds in various ways.
Forget Me Not supports children with life-shortening conditions, helping hundreds of children, and their families, through their Hospice at Home service and at the purpose-built building, Russell House, in Sheepridge, Huddersfield.
One of the events we get involved in is the Dragon Boat Race held each September in Pugneys Country Park Wakefield. In 2022 there were 21 Dragon Boat crews. We had a very enthusiastic team and actually won the race!
It was a great day and our team of 17 volunteers came from across our branches and from a range of departments. Following a few challenging practices runs the team pulled it off, working so well together to get it right on the day. It was an amazing event and for such a worthy cause.
Overall, the event raised £22,000 for the hospice and we are proud to have played our part.
We can’t wait to participate again this year.
