Take the plunge in a good cause

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A CHIL­DREN’S hospice is urg­ing peo­ple to take on a new chal­lenge to help it raise funds.

He­len & Dou­glas House, which looks after chil­dren and young adults with life-lim­it­ing con­di­tions in Buck­ing­hamshire, is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to help by do­ing things such as spon­sored cy­cle rides, para­chute jumps or climb­ing a moun­tain or two.

Com­mu­nity fundraiser for the hospice, Poppy Han­bury, said: “This is a great op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to make a dif­fer­ence to young lives this year. They have the chance to take part in an ex­cit­ing chal­lenge all of their own.

“There is a chal­lenge for every­body and no mat­ter whether you will take to the skies and jump out of a plane or swim in your lo­cal pool, it’s all an ad­ven­ture worth try­ing as it’s help­ing chil­dren and young adults who visit the hospice.”
