Sidhil Sponsor the Brand New Overgate Hospice Van

The Overgate Hospice provides specialist palliative care for adults in the Calderdale area facing life limiting illnesses. The running costs for the Overgate Hospice are around 1.9 million a year with the local primary care trust only covering 18% of the costs, this leaves a lot of money to be raised from voluntary sources. To continue to provide the care and support to its patients the hospice requires £4000 per day.

Thanks to the support of local businesses the Overgate Hospice has recently purchased a brand new van. The van will be used to pick up unwanted furniture from homes and moved to the Overgate hospice shops located in the area. The money for the van came from local businesses which paid £500 each, in turn there company logo was placed on the side of the van for 3 years.

As a Corporate Member of the Hospice, Sidhil will continue to help raise funds for the Overgate Hospice throughout the year and for many years to come!
