Overgate Hospice’s longest running charity event is taking place this weekend in the grounds of the facility in Elland.

The Overgate Hospice Garden Party takes place on Sunday, May 14 and will feature music, dancing, activities and more.

Harold the Hospice Hare will officially open the event at noon and an afternoon of entertainment for all the family will begin.

There will be entertainment from Pheonix Radio, dancing from Baby Ballet and the North Bridge Line Dancers, and music from local duo Audible Silence in addition to a host of stalls, games, real ale and a barbeque.

There will also be appearances by special guests at the event in the form of comic book characters and Shetland ponies.

The garden party will be supported by staff and volunteers from the hospice, Elland Rotary Club, Sowerby Bridge Rotary Club, Halifax Calder Rotary Club and the Brighouse Ladies Circle.

Harriet Eames, community fundraiser said: “We are so grateful for the wealth of support we have received this year and it truly looks set to be our best Garden Party to date.

“Everyone is welcome to join us for this great family day out and we look forward to seeing you there.”
