Companies wanted for hospice challenge

Groups and companies in Derbyshire are being challenged to get ‘nifty with a fifty’ to raise funds for a children’s hospice.

Organisations across the county are being encouraged to sign up to the Accumulator Challenge and support Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, which provides specialist care and support to children from Derbyshire with life-limited illnesses.

Teams that take part will be given £50 and encouraged to turn it in to as much cash as possible over three months.

Katie Baxter, community and events manager at Rainbows, said: “We give you £50 and during three months we ask you to raise as much as you can for Rainbows by whatever means you like, as long as it is safe and legal.”

Rainbows is looking for teams to register before the challenge launches in September. Contact 07876 500 632, or visit
