Fundraising highlights: Novembers incredible community support
As always, our community has overwhelmed us with their tremendous support in November. We want to say thank you to everyone who attended events and helped raise the vital funds for our Hospice.
Here are some highlights from November:
The Old Grocers
We’d like to say a massive thank you to The Old Grocers in Pontefract for their recent donation of £2,000!
At each of their Wednesday quiz nights, they host a ‘Hospice Question’, entered by donation, and is a tradition that has been going on for an incredible 24 years!
We’re grateful to the pub, their staff, and all the generous quiz-goers who’ve made this possible over the years.
Dog show cheque presentation
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in organising the Dog Show in September; the event raised an incredible £854.74 for our Hospice!
We couldn't do what we do without the incredible support of our community. Thank you to everyone who attended and to all the dog owners and handlers who brought along their furry friends.
Co op membership fund
Thanks to our supporters, we’ve raised a total of £3,406.45 through the Co-op Local Community Fund in the past year!
You can support our Hospice every time you shop – all you have to do is become a member, select The Prince of Wales Hospice (Five Towns Hospice Fund) as your local cause, and scan or swipe your membership card the next time you shop at the Co-op.

Nick Harland
We recently welcomed Nick Harland, an engineer from Sky, to our Hospice to volunteer for the day.
Nick chose to spend his volunteering day helping out our Fundraising Team, doing everything from stuffing newsletters with Club 5 promotion leaflets, counting the stock of our volunteer t-shirts, to cleaning the collection tins and adding new wraps, making them look immaculate!
Thank you for all your help, Nick; we really appreciate it!
Ackworth Pram Fest cheque presentation
We’re blown away by the incredible success of this year’s Ackworth PramFest, which raised an astonishing £19,480 for our Hospice.
This beloved event has become a yearly tradition, and you smashed last year's fundraising record this summer.
Thank you to the hardworking organisers who poured their time and passion into making PramFest 2023 such an enormous achievement. Events like this remind us how generous and dedicated our community is.
The funds raised will help us continue providing specialised palliative care to patients, and crucial support for their families when they need it most. This donation can cover the cost of running a patient room for six weeks.
PramFest is more than just a fun-filled day - it truly makes a difference for our Hospice. Thank you.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to CHEP, who raised a total of £521.62 for our Hospice at their charity football match.
The match was held in fond memory of their friend and work colleague Steve Jarratt.
Also, thank you to Pontefract Collieries FC for hosting the event at their grounds.
