Bingley Friends

The Friends of Bingley, Baildon and Saltaire were set up in June 2019 and in their first year raised well over £11,000!  The group has regular monthly meetings, attended by a core group of between 10 and 15, many of whom are very closely connected to the hospice, but their facebook group has many hundreds of followers, which enables them to spread their network far and wide.

Their most successful event in their first year was their Santa Sleigh around the streets of Gilstead and Eldwick, bringing Christmas cheer to all and raising over £4000 for the hospice.

Alongside this brilliant event, they frequently represent Martin House at local galas and events, manage collecting tins, put on large-scale events like their Halloween Masquerade Ball and concerts, and work alongside local businesses to support them in their fundraising.
