The Kirkwood Get Together

Join us this September to host your very own Get Together for The Kirkwood. Sign up today and bring your family, friends, or colleagues together for a fun event to raise money for people affected by any life limiting illness here in Kirklees. 

Whether you choose to host a Coffee Morning, Afternoon Tea or even a Quiz Night in your local pub this September, your Get Together will help to raise awareness about the care The Kirkwood Nurses provide for patients in their own homes – in every town and village across Kirklees.

By supporting The Kirkwood you’re not simply supporting our work. You are supporting life itself - constantly working to help improve it against all the odds.

WHY SUPPORT THE KIRKWOOD?

The Kirkwood Nurses work tirelessly, seven days a week, providing specialist care and support for patients in their own homes and in care homes in every town and village across Kirklees. Our nurses often get mistaken for Macmillan Nurses, but it is The Kirkwood Nurses who deliver this care to our local community. In truth, Macmillan don’t cover the Kirklees area because they don’t need to. The Kirkwood are here for anyone affected by a life limiting illness here in Kirklees, wherever they are and whenever they need us.

We want to spread the word about the incredible care and support The Kirkwood Nurses offer to local families in your community. By hosting an event as part of The Kirkwood Get Together, you’ll be helping to raise the profile of The Kirkwood Nurses in your local area, all whilst raising funds to make sure we can continue to care.

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED

You can take part in lots of ways; the choice is yours! Host a Get Together and invite your nearest and dearest round for a sponsored games night; host a coffee morning in your front room; or involve your whole community and host your very own street party! If you’re a business owner, you could host a raffle and involve your customers; hold a lunch time fuddle in the office or organise a sponsored event.

Whatever you decided we’re sure it’ll be a great success and we can’t wait to hear all about it. Get started today by registering to receive your FREE fundraising pack.
