On Wednesday 5th July, the NHS will turn 75. 

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Charity is encouraging colleagues to join this year's Big Hospital Walk on Sunday 9th July, to commemorate the landmark occasion. 

The ‘Big Hospital Walk’ is a 10km route, starting at the main entrance of Calderdale Royal Infirmary, and finishing at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary. The route will take walkers through some of the most beautiful countryside in our area, taking the scenic, yet rather hilly route from Salterhebble, through West Vale, Holywell Green, and Lindley.

CEO, Brendan Brown, said: “As a Trust, we are delighted to be celebrating 75 years of our amazing NHS by supporting our NHS Charity's Big Hospital Walk. Put your best foot forward and join in!"

Emma Kovaleski, CHFT Charity Manager, said: “The Big Hospital Walk is a perfect opportunity to bring together your friends, family members, colleagues and communities in celebration and honour of the incredible NHS services provided by CHFT. The charity walk will not only be a wonderful commemorative occasion, but it will help raise funds for our NHS Charity – so we can continue to provide those all-important extras that enhance patient experience and colleague wellbeing.”

Eddie Parker, Project Manager of IHP, who have kindly sponsored the event, said: “The Vinci Building Team are delighted that we have been given the opportunity to support CHFT Charity with their Big Hospital Walk on the 75th anniversary of the NHS. Good luck to everyone involved.”
