Doing the 3 Peaks for the Barnsley Hospice was an amazing experience; the scenery & the satisfaction of completing it is something I will never forget.
“What better motivation than to raise some funds for Barnsley Hospice?… I am in awe of, and have enormous respect for the vital work they do, particularly during the challenges of the past two years.”
Janet and Jocelyn
“We are raising money in memory of our friend’s daughter. She was fortunate to have spent some time at the hospice and was looked after with such care and dignity. Our friend can’t thank the hospice enough for taking care of her.”
“Barnsley Hospice has supported many of my family and friends. It brings the community closer together, and gives the town the fighting spirit to continue to raise funds for the amazing work it does, every single day.”
Gordon Bird, Mellors News
“Barnsley Hospice is a great local charity that we feel proud to support.”
Doing the Yorkshire Three Peaks was a fantastic life experience and adventure. It was hard – I was certainly glad I trained in the run-up – but it was all so worth it! The sense of achievement was off the scale, and I raised an incredible amount for the wonderful Barnsley Hospice.
“My mum spent the last three weeks of her 97-year life in the hospice. In the ensuing years I have personally, and through my running club Barnsley Harriers, raised thousands for the hospice. In some small way, I hope I have repaid all the kindness, care and consideration my mum received.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to some of the questions we are asked most, if you have a different query, just get in touch! Call 01226 244 244 or email: email@example.com.
How do I send you the money I have raised for the hospice?
You can donate the money you’ve raised using the Make a Donation form on this website. It’s quick, easy a secure and we’ll send you an acknowledgement of your donation.

Will someone from the hospice come to our fundraiser?
We try our very best to arrange for a hospice representative to attend any event we are invited to, but we cannot always guarantee this. Let us know all about your event and ask if you’d like someone to attend by completing our fundraising contact form here or get in touch on 01226 244 244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I set up a JustGiving page for my hospice fundraiser?
This is a really good way to promote your event and collect donations. It’s easy to set up your own JustGiving account, create an event page and connect it to our charity account – just search ‘Barnsley Hospice’. The money you collect on JustGiving comes to us directly, so there is nothing more for you to do. Here is our ‘how to’ guide. You can use other online giving platforms too, but JustGiving is the one we recommend.
Will you help me to plan and organise my event?
Unfortunately, we are not able to get involved in organising your independent event. But, we are always here to offer advice and support. We also have downloadable resources available via our website, plus you can request a fundraising bundle – banner, balloons, bucket. See our own hospice-organised events and fundraisers on our Events page.
Do I have to tell you I am planning to fundraise for you?
It’s great to hear about your fundraiser beforehand if possible. This helps us to offer any support in the run up, and say thank you for your efforts. You can let us know by completing our fundraising contact form on this page or email us on email@example.com or call 01226 244 244. If you’ve already done your fundraiser, no worries at all though. We’d love to hear from you now and receive your donation.
