Team James Heal take on the #MidnightWalk challenge in aid of Overgate Hospice

Team James Heal is once again taking on the Overgate Hospice Midnight Walk, walking either 7 or 13 miles at midnight to raise money for our chosen charity.

After a phenomenal year in 2017 to celebrate it's tenth anniversary, the Midnight Walk is back with two new routes for 2018. We'll be walking a total of 150 miles - during the middle of the night when most of us are asleep!


Team members include: Chester Barnett, Martin Eastwood, Paul Smith, Christine Hall, Rob Briggs, Jenny Sumner, Craig Brown, Danny Richardson, Paul Mapals, Mick Jones, Joe Kaye, Craig Addison

Any donation you can make to this worthy cause is greatly appreciated - and thank you to everyone, friends and customers alike, who have already donated. We're hoping to beat last year's target of £400!

James Heal chose Overgate Hospice, who are based in Elland, UK, as their ‘Charity of the Year’ a few years ago.

Since then, we have been supporting Overgate in different ways; from small things such as book exchanges, bake days, dress down Fridays, domino cards and collection tubs; to bigger events that we have either taken part in or helped out at:

  • The Mountain Bike Challenge
  • Garden Party
  • Colour Run
  • Midnight Walk

We have had positive feedback from Overgate on our help in the short space of time we have supported them, including thank you cards, letters and certificates. Each month we have a barometer that shows how much money the company has raised for Overgate. This is posted on the news notice boards, along with events past, present and future.

How to donate:
