Our Worthy Causes

Brodstock is completely not-for-profit and whilst our aims are all about inspiring musical performance and celebrating our local community we also aspire to raise a whole load of cash for charity.

Whats more, we’re run by an enthusiastic bunch of volunteers which means every penny either goes on putting the day on or direct to the causes.

Overgate Hospice

So far we’ve raised over £50,000 for our district’s only adult hospice.

Overgate is an independent and local charity with a mission to ensure that
their patients, and those close to their patients, live with the best
possible quality of life. Overgate do this by providing the highest
standard of compassionate and evidence-based specialist palliative and end
of life care for adults in Calderdale who have active, progressive,
life-limiting illnesses.

The festival has been working with Overgate from the beginning. In fact, as the rugby club looked to introduce a Summer event to it’s calendar, it was a partnership with the Brighouse Friends of Overgate that set the Brodstock ball rolling.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance

2018 is the first year we’ve worked with YAA through the festival although they were the rugby club’s official charity back in 2014/15 when over £10,000 was raised.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an indepentant charity providing a life saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people accross our county, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The keep providing this life saving service the charity needs to raise £12,000 per day to keep both ambulances maintained and in the air.

Old Brodleians Community Rugby Club

Over 100 volunteers from the club are the core “Brodstock Makers” every year. Without them, we have no festival…. and a bloody good job they do too!
