Sunday saw the launch of a brand new event - The Kirkwood Hospice 10K Trail Run in aid of Kirkwood Hospice.

The Hospice provides specialist care, free of charge, to adults in Kirklees with advanced, progressive illnesses at any time from diagnosis to the end of life, respecting their individual needs and wishes. Care and support is also provided for their family members, friends and carers, both during the illness and after death.
