We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in our events over recent weeks, the 5th July saw our Big Tea event for the NHS 71st Birthday, and the 6th was the first time we entered three teams for the Dragon Boat event at Pugneys Country Park, Wakefield. 

Parker Group Golf Donation

Today our maternity and MY Hospitals Charity teams received a wonderful donation of £7,323 from the Parker Group.

Hayley (pictured below 3rd from the right)  and Kris Parker (pictured below on the left) from the Parker Group generously hold charity golf events every year, raising funds for local charities close to their hearts. For the past two years we have been incredibly fortunate that the Parker group have chosen our MY Hospitals Charity as their designated Charity.

This year they held a charity golfing event to raise money for our Labour ward at Pinderfields Hospital, towards the creation of a family bereavement room to provide privacy, comfort and dignity for parents and families during  difficult times.

This fantastic donation is an incredible boost to support our maternity teams.

A huge thank you to Hayley, Kris and the entire Parker Group organisation for this generous donation!

Our Head of Safeguarding has selflessly volunteered to shave his hair off after 2 years of growing, poignantly this coincides with the passing of his mum and raising funds in her honour for our Charity. Our sincere thanks to Clive for this wonderful gesture. You can read his story at http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/clive-barrett

We plan on broadcasting Live on facebook on the 22nd between 12pm-1pm.
