Hospice Care Burnley and Pendle have received more than £35,000 from the Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks over the last eight years.

That figure is part of the £5m. that the banks have donated to hospices across the country.

As one of Hospice UK’s largest and longest-standing corporate partners, the banks have been working with the charity for eight years, raising an average of £1,712 per day, to provide vital support to patients and their families at over 200 hospices across the UK.

To celebrate the financial landmark and to build on the success of the partnership to date, the banks have launched a fitting challenge which will see up to 200 employees hike over five million steps across the Yorkshire Dales in September 2016 in what is set to be the largest employee fundraising event in the banks’ history.
