Investing For Tomorrow helps keep Overgate Hospice open at the start of 2021

Chartered Financial Planner and Advising Partner Laurence Turner of IFT Wealth Management in Halifax is kick starting the New Year for Overgate Hospice with a donation of £7,000 to keep their doors open on the first day of 2021.

Laurence isn’t just an Overgate Hero, he is also a dedicated volunteer for the White Knights Blood Bikes charity and delivers urgent blood to people across Calderdale to help his local community. Over the past 12 month Laurence has made significant donations of £12,000 towards the Hospice’s Emergency Corporate Appeal which was launched back in May and also is a regular sponsor of their fundraising events: The Yorkshire Peaks Challenge, Overgate Garden Party and Mountain Bike Challenge and many more.

Sponsorships are one of the main ways which can help bring income into the Hospice and without this support the vast calendar of Hospice events wouldn’t happen.  Laurence Turner said: “Our company ethos here is all about working together, sharing expertise and supporting each other.  “We feel that the inspiring work which is done every day at Overgate Hospice is truly worthy of our support and it is so important to local people in the community and we’re very proud to be a part of it.”

Becki Marren, Business Partnerships Manager said: “This year has been incredibly difficult for the Hospice, but we are so grateful for businesses like IFT Wealth management and heroes like Laurence who are there to support us when we need it the most.  “I want to thank Laurence for being so dedicated to Overgate for many years, your kindness makes such a difference to the Hospice and we are immensely grateful.”
