Manorlands Hospice is situated in West Yorkshire on the northern edge of the village of Oxenhope. We provide incredible palliative care and complementary therapy services to support people with life-limiting conditions which can involve complex physical or psychological problems. Our care focuses on helping resolve these problems whilst supporting family, carers and close friends. This care is known as specialist palliative care.

Charity work has been a very important part of my upbringing as I learned from one of the best, my hero, none other than my late father who always tried helping others whenever they needed help and whenever he could help them. Watching him whilst I was growing up do good for the community motivated me in trying to do the same which is why I organise events and have been involved with various Charities that have touched my heart. The most recent is to try and raise as much money as possible for Sue Ryder, Manorlands Hospice. My first event for Manorlands was held in 2016, this came about after losing my cousin, Fozia as well as losing other family members and friends to cancer. Our most recent bereavement was the loss of Brian in October, 2017. Brian attended every Charity event with his larger than life personality; his one liners would have you in stitches. He was a very important member of our team, who would year in and year out make DVD’s and take photographs of all the events which we were involved in and would donate copies to all the participants. This year’s Charity night Brian will be deeply missed and the 2018 event will be a fitting tribute to a great man.
Another loss I experienced was my cousin, Tony, whom I had lost contact with for over forty years and only managed to re-unite with him in the last few months of his life and not forgetting Stephen whom I personally did not know but is sadly missed by his loved ones, David and Rachael and their family. Stephen passed away in Manorlands Hospice. David and Rachael, known as none other than our own Dave Graceland and the Passionettes, have supported our Charity events since we started raising money for the Hospice, they have nothing but support for Manorlands as they have experienced the incredible, crucial, essential and all the hard work that the staff team there put in to make every patient and their family members comfortable whilst going through difficult times.
Since the first Charity event, everybody involved, my family and friends who are dedicated to all the fund raising will continue trying to help these worthy and important causes.
The volunteers, performers and the business community play a major part in the Charity night been a success as well as the audience who generously raise as much money as possible before the evening is over. Without these lovely people we would not achieve our target.
Every year we aim to raise more than the previous year and there are so many good people that support me in doing so. THANK YOU.

We also provide support for GPs and nurses and offer inpatient stays whilst also having patients attend our day hospice and visiting people in their own homes. We have 16 single bedded rooms, seven with ensuite.
We work very closely with the specialist teams in the local hospitals to ensure that treatment and care is continued after a person is discharged home or transferred to our inpatient unit.
