Charity appeals for people to hold Festive Fundays for Weston Hospicecare.


A Weston charity is looking for schools, businesses and community groups to hold festive fundraisers.

Weston Hospicecare has launched a festive-themed fundraising initiative and it is encouraging people to take part by doing something Christmassy in aid of the cause.

The hopsice’s community fundraiser, Rachel Mansfield, said: “Weston Hospicecare is planning its Festive Fundays and we are looking at local businesses and community groups to get involved.

“All you have to do is pick any day between now and Christmas, and do something festive.

“Wear a Christmas jumper, make and sell some mince pies, don your Christmas socks or use one of the many ideas in our free Festive Fundays pack.”

To receive your free pack which includes ideas, recipes, colouring sheets and posters, contact Rachel on 01934 423921 or email
