The Great North Run -Sunday 9th September 2018.
 

The Great North Run is the world's largest half marathon, taking place annually in September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields in the North East of England. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000 m bronze medalist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.

Only the London Marathon comes close to attracting similar numbers of athletes each year. This year The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Charity secured 5 entries for members of our staff to participate in this iconic event for 2018. We are really excited about this prospect and wish our 5 lucky participants all the luck in the world!! - Our  5 fantastic fundraisers are; Charlene Pressley, Janine Pierson, Sophie Maynard, Sarah Seymour and Abbie Dagg.  Please support, follow and motivate these fantastic ladies on their Journey!!

The Lord of The Rings comes to the Yorkshire Dales   July 2018

We have some amazing supporters in our Local Communities for Mid Yorkshire Hospitals, Zach Fowley and Tom Crossley are certainly two of those!

They have come up with the super novel idea to walk 80 miles across the Yorkshire Dales dressed as no less than the Hobbits from the Lord Of The Rings. As you probably gathered they like an adventure..... and love the Lord of The Rings, so what better way to incorporate the two together!! We wish them all the luck, and very much look forward to their Live streaming- we will be following this on our Social media channels so stay tuned!!

The Annual Parker Group Charity Golf Day,Thursday 2nd August 2018.

This year the Annual Parker Group Charity Golf Day at Normanton Golf Club will be raising funds for our Neonatal unit at Pinderfields hospital hosted by Hayley and Kris Parker.

 In January 2017, Hayley and Kris received the most tragic of news, whilst attending Hayley's routine 20 week pregnancy scan.

 "The Staff were all so kind and calm throughout this time. They answered endless questions, we could phone anytime and speak to them, and they regularly phoned us to check how we were coping. We will never forget all your kindness, I write this now 35 weeks pregnant, and again the support received in the obviously worrying first 17 weeks of this pregnancy was brilliant.  

"The work that the team do on a daily basis is wonderful and we hope that this small contribution could somehow go towards helping other people in similar situations."

Update April 2018- Hayley and Kris have a beautiful baby girl.
