22.4.24 Expect Distribution Press Release Overgate Hospice

Overgate Hospice Is Our Chosen Charity for 2024!

We are proud to announce our partnership with Overgate Hospice as our chosen charity for 2024. Overgate Hospice, located in Calderdale, provides expert care, support, and advice for patients and their families living with life-limiting illnesses.

Living with a life-limiting illness can be challenging, affecting individuals and their loved ones in many ways. Overgate Hospice works closely with patients upon referral to provide tailored care and support, based on their individual needs. Their highly qualified team of doctors, nurses, and support staff ensures that patients receive the highest standard of care and assistance for managing symptoms. Additionally, Overgate Hospice offers a range of free services such as bereavement support, carer's groups, and community hubs, all aimed at enhancing the quality of life for those affected by life-limiting illnesses in the Calderdale area.

Having just launched the 'Big Build Appeal' project, Overgate are seeking to raise £12.75 million to expand and redevelop their facilities to meet the growing demand for their services. This initiative has presented an opportunity for Expect to contribute to their fundraising efforts and raise awareness about their vital work.

The partnership between Expect and Overgate Hospice was internally announced at the beginning of the year, with regular updates and communications planned to keep our colleagues informed about fundraising activities and events. We will be leveraging our marketing budget to support fundraising initiatives and encourage colleague participation by covering application fees for events and providing match funding opportunities.

Furthermore, Expect Distribution and Overgate Hospice will collaborate on various fundraising events throughout the year, including The Overgate Colour Run, Garden Party, and The Annual Ball. We will also offer volunteering opportunities for all of our colleagues to support Overgate Hospice's activities and initiatives.

"We are thrilled to partner with Overgate Hospice as our chosen charity for 2024," said Matthew Kilner, Managing Director at Expect Distribution. "Their commitment to providing compassionate care and support to individuals and families facing life-limiting illnesses is unwavering and with some of our own colleagues having needed their services and support over the years, we look forward to working closely with Overgate Hospice to help them reach their goals.”

Suzanne Benn, Business Partnership Manager at Overgate Hospice comments “On behalf of all the team at Overgate Hospice, I would like to extend our deepest thanks to Expect Distribution for selecting us as their chosen charity. As we embark on this journey together, we are eagerly anticipating the impact we will create through our shared dedication, joint events, and collaborative campaigns. Here's to a partnership filled with purpose, compassion, and generosity."


Through fundraising efforts, volunteering initiatives, and collaborative events, we eagerly look forward to supporting Overgate Hospice in continuing its invaluable work.
