Get baking for Kirkwood this September!

Host a Cuppa for Kirkwood this September and make a massive difference to families affected by a life limiting illness in Kirklees.

Are you the best baker in town?

Kirkwood launches their brand new Cuppa for Kirkwood campaign this September the Fundraising team would love people in Kirklees to dig out their whisks and put the kettle on for their local community.

Cuppa for Kirkwood is a really simple way of raising vital funds to support people near you affected by a life limiting illness, wherever you live in Kirklees. Bring your friends, family or work colleagues together for a coffee morning or lavish afternoon tea and do something amazing for your local community.


Did you know, last year in Kirklees, Kirkwood Community Nurses cared for 1,156 patients in their own homes? This equates to 3,207 total visits in 2018.

These visits take place in every town and village across Kirklees and so by hosting this small event, you could ensure a nurse is there to care people near you, wherever and whenever they need it.

With your help, this team of Nurses can reach more people than ever before in 2019.

To help you get started, you will receive a free Cuppa for Kirkwood pack filled with lots of tips and ideas you need to host your own event, including recipes from Matthew, Kirkwood’s Head Chef.

Your event can take place anytime in September and you can host it anywhere you like, in your back garden with friends and family, in the local church hall or even in the office.

Community Fundraisers, Julia Owen and Joanna Doherty, and Business Partnerships  Manager, Kate Leadbeater, are excited to see so many people from all corners of Kirklees come together in support of Kirkwood.

Joanna said: “This is a really lovely campaign that enables anyone to get their friends and family together to support Kirkwood. It doesn’t matter how big or small your event is, you will be making a difference to people who live in your community.”

Kate added: “This is a great way to get your employees or colleagues to have a bit of fun at work and raise money for your local Hospice! Have a department bake off, host a coffee morning with your clients or bring your employees together for tea and cake. Whatever you choose, every penny you raise will be used to support local people here in Kirklees. You’ll be helping to support your neighbours, your customers, your employees and those they care for and about.”

Kirkwood is here to support anyone by a life limiting illness in Kirklees, every step of the way.
