THE £3m renovation at Kirkwood Hospice has taken another giant stride forward.

The roof should be going on this week and the fundraising is starting to gather pace with £1.3m of the £3m target now in the bank.

But there is a long way to go and the hospice will need all the support it can get to reach its total by early next summer.

The hospice staff and army of dedicated volunteers have cared for Huddersfield’s terminally ill brilliantly for a quarter of a century and the renovation means the quality of its accommodation will be even better in the long-term future.

The hospice has helped Huddersfield. Now let’s all help the hospice.
