A charity is on the look out for schools across west Suffolk and Thetford whose students can channel their business sense into its new fundraising challenge.

The Schools Accumlator will see each school taking part give a £50.

They will have two months to make as much money as they can, with all money raised from the challenging going to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

George Chilvers, the hospice’s community fundraising manager, said: “I really hope that this challenge will be a chance for pupils to become more aware of what the hospice does and how we support people while giving them the opportunity to think creatively and have some fun with their fundraising.”

The challenge, which schools can sign up for now, will begin with a reception on October 11, and will run until the end of December.
