National Elf Service Day – Friday 14 December 2018

This year, we are asking you to release your inner elf and have some fun to help us make a difference to patients and their families and staff at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust. Celebrate the amazing work of the NHS this Christmas!

To take part, all you have to do is dress festive whether you just don an elf hat, a pair of Christmas socks or go ‘full-on-elf’, it is up to you! Donate £1 and go about your normal day.

Anyone can join in National Elf Service Day, so get your friends and family involved at school or work (make sure to get their permission) or even elf your pets! Why not make it full day of ‘elfie competition’ and play some games, hold a best dressed elf competition or host a bake sale.

Get in touch now for your National Elf Service Day fundraising guide by calling the team on: 01423 555641 or email david.fisher@hdft.nhs.uk.

Nidderdale Walk – 19 May 2019

We are delighted to be partnering with the Rotary Club of Harrogate for their 26th Nidderdale Walk on Sunday 19 May 2019.

The event, organised by the Rotary Club of Harrogate, is returning to Pately Bridge, with the walks taking participants into upper Nidderdale.

In 2019, there will be five walks of approximately four, eight, fifteen, twenty two and twenty six miles so there is a challenge for everyone including families. The eight mile walk heads south from Pateley Bridge to Coldstones Cut whilst the others head up Nidderdale towards Lofthouse, and beyond for the longer routes.

We are hoping to have a big team of walkers taking part in support of Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity and would be delighted if you would join our team and help us make a difference to the patients and their families at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust.

Once you have registered, please get in touch with us by emailing david.fisher@hdft.nhs.uk or calling the fundraising team on 01423 555641 and we will send you your fundraising pack.

Full walk details including the routes and how to register can be found at www.nidderdalewalk.com.

For those who prefer to run in the hills, there is also the Nidderdale Run on the same day. Places in the run are limited, so be sure to sign up quickly to avoid disappointment. Full run details can be found at www.runnidderdale.com.

Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge – Saturday 22 June 2019

After our first successful Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, we are delighted to announce that registration for our 2019 event is now open!

The Three Peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside are among the best known hills in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The peaks, which form part of the Pennine range, are arranged in a triangle and encircle the heads of the valleys of the River Ribble and of Chapel-le-Dale.

The challenge is to walk the circular route, scaling each peak in turn aiming for a time less than 12 hours. The total walking distance is 39.2km (24.5 miles).

Early Bird Offer – £25 registration fee if you sign up before 31 December 2018 – £30 from 1 January 2019.

To take part in Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity’s Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge there is a registration fee of £25 if booked in 2018 – this fee covers the costs of putting on the event and looking after your health and safety. In addition to this, we ask everyone to pledge to raise a minimum of £125 for the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

The walk itself is fully marshalled with checkpoints along the route and your guides will brief you fully on the morning of the walk. You walk at whatever pace is best for you, and we expect most walkers to complete the walk in between 11 and 12 hours.

You can sign up as an individual or as part of a team; why not try and encourage your colleagues or friends to join you so you can support each other on the challenge!
