Expect Distribution, a logistics company based in Bradford, is proud to announce its partnership with Overgate Hospice as its 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 Distribution to contribute to their fundraising efforts and raise awareness about their vital work.

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

Furthermore, they will collaborate on various fundraising events throughout the year, including The Overgate colour run, garden party, and the annual ball. The company will also offer volunteering opportunities for colleagues to support Overgate Hospice's activities and initiatives.

"We are thrilled to partner with Overgate Hospice 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, 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."

Expect Distribution's partnership with Overgate Hospice underscores its dedication to corporate social responsibility and making a positive impact on the communities it serves. Through fundraising efforts, volunteering initiatives, and collaborative events, Expect Distribution eagerly looks forward to supporting Overgate Hospice in continuing its invaluable work.
