Richard Kendall to sponsor Pontefract 10K
March 7, 2018
We are so proud to announce we will be sponsoring the Pontefract 10K this year, to help raise funds for The Prince of Wales Hospice.
The hospice has been providing care to people with life limiting illnesses since 1989, this includes cancer, motor neuron disease and chronic heart and lung disease. The hospice provides advice and guidance to help patients live better with their illness, with over half of in-patients eventually feeling confident enough to return home. Others choose the safety and dignity of the Hospice for care at the end of their life.
The care doesn’t stop at the patients, as the hospice provides help and support to the carers and families of patients who often need just as much.
Unfortunately, only approximately 25% of the cost is covered by the NHS, meaning they have no choice but to rely on fundraising to make up the other 75% – which equates to over £3m a year!
“We’re so excited to be bringing a 10k road race back to Pontefract and would like to thank Richard Kendall for all their support in helping us to achieve this. We look forward to seeing everyone at the starting line on 17th June ready to take on Pontefract 10k and show their support for The Prince of Wales Hospice!”- Katy Lee, Events Fundraising Officer at the Hospice
The race will take place on June 17th this year, we hope to see you there.
