Raise a Smile for children’s hospice
- Credit: supplied
RAISE a Smile week will take place to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West from Friday.
Held each year, the aim of the week is to raise awareness of the positive work the charity does at Charlton Farm in Wraxall, as well as its two other hospices in Devon and Cornwall. It is also aimed at encouraging people to have some fundraising fun.
Head of fundraising at Charlton Farm, Karen Edgington, said: “Our hospices are often filled with joy and laughter as we help make the most of short and precious lives.
“They are places where mums and dads, brothers and sisters, and poorly children can forget their worries for a while and make the most of every precious moment they have together as a family.”
Those hoping to get involved in Raise a Smile Week, which runs from Friday until May 3, can do so in a number of ways.
