A CHILDREN’S hospice is asking companies, groups and schools in Burton if they can be nifty and thrifty with a fifty.
Organisations across the county are being encouraged to sign up this year’s accumulator challenge and support Rainbows Hospice which provides specialist care and support to children with life-limited and terminal illnesses.
For three months, from Monday, May 5, the Loughborough based hospice is setting the challenge to groups, schools and companies to be creative, have fun and raise money.
The teams will be given £50 and challenged to turn it in to as much cash as possible, which will go towards supporting Rainbows in its 20th birthday year.
