A group of our young individuals from one of our Residential provisions in Calderdale, accompanied by staff members, recently gathered together to embark on a challenging 13-mile walk to raise funds for Overgate Hospice Charity. The walk offered two different distances, with the seven-mile walk being a more accessible option for participants.
The Midnight Walk is hands down the biggest event of the year for Overgate and it’s not your typical walking challenge! The walk is a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and raise vital funds for the Hospice. Plus, it’s a chance for everyone to let loose, have a blast, and maybe even be a little silly! The funds raised through this event allow Overgate to extend their care to even more families in Calderdale who are in desperate need.
The young people expressed their feeling of accomplishment when they completed the challenge. Staff also acknowledged the remarkable achievement of the young people and encouraged them to be proud of themselves for successfully completing the entire distance.

Well done to all involved and thank you for helping make a difference!
