Rodder’s Bar raised £1,990 through a 3K sponsored walk and raffle.

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.

Gavin Coles

“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.”

Emily Hirst

“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.”

Janet and Jocelyn

“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.”

Naomi Crookes

“Barnsley Hospice is a great local charity that we feel proud to support.”

Gordon Bird, Mellors News

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.

Simon Atkinson

“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.”
