Businesses have been challenged to put their money-making skills to the test in aid of Suffolk’s St Nicholas Hospice Care.

The Accumulator Challenge will see 45 firms aim to make as much return from a £50 stake within three months.

All the money will go to the Bury St Edmunds-based hospice, which supports people living with dying, death and grief in the west Suffolk and Thetford area.

Rachel Card of St Nicholas Hospice Care said: "I am so pleased that so many businesses have decided to support the hospice through the Accumulator Challenge this year.

"Their money making adventures have already got off to a flying start with quiz nights, a cheese and wine event, a sponsored car wash and a cake stall, already planned for this summer.

"Over the last ten years the challenge has raised £360,000 for the hospice. The money raised makes a huge difference to us; it helps us continue to care for those across the community who really need our support."

Although the challenge is now underway anyone wishing to take part can still join in.
