Are you All Heart for Kirkwood?

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, Kirkwood is looking for big hearted businesses and local supporters to join them at the Clarion Cedar Court Hotel in Huddersfield for a brand new fundraising lunch.

On Friday, 15th February, Kirkwood is set to host the All Heart for Kirkwood lunch, and it is inviting caring companies from the local area to join them for an afternoon of great entertainment, lots of enjoyable fundraising activities and a delicious three course lunch.

Set to be held at the Clarion Cedar Court Hotel in Huddersfield, the lunch time fundraiser is a chance for like-minded colleagues from businesses across Kirklees to join together to raise funds to support local people who rely on Kirkwood’s services.

The event will help to raise vital funds for Kirkwood’s Braveheart service, which supports people affected by chronic heart failure.

Since 2012, Kirkwood’s team of experienced professionals have helped hundreds of people living with heart conditions to maintain their independence, develop new coping strategies and live the best quality of life possible.

Often described as angels due to the love and care they give to patients and families, Kirkwood’s team of nurses and healthcare professionals supported for over 100 local people affected by chronic heart failure through Braveheart last year. That number grows year on year, and Kirkwood’s aim is to offer support to everyone who needs it, every step of the way.

Organisers hope that the All Heart event will raise the £13,000 it costs to support services at Kirkwood, such as Braveheart.

Kirkwood’s Kate Leadbeater is passionate about the difference Braveheart makes for people with heart failure and is looking forward to welcoming guests to the All Heart event.

She said: “Supporting people to maintain their quality of life and to make the most of the time they have left is at the very heart of the Braveheart programme.

“All Heart for Kirkwood is a great opportunity for local businesses to show that they share our passion about delivering the best possible care for local people.

“It’s also a great way for them to kick start the new year by hosting a table and inviting clients to what is shaping up to be a brilliant afternoon in support of a great cause.
