BARNSLEY Hospice has found a novel way to help fundraise for the charity in honour of World Book Day.

A read-a-thon bingo has been created and includes everything from reading for one hour straight to writing a book review.

Anyone wanting to take part will have to be sponsored for each space on the bingo board.

A spokesperson for the hospice said: “In the spirit of World Book Day, why not dust off your pile of books and get reading for Barnsley Hospice?

“We have developed a read-a-thon bingo and we challenge you to help raise vital funds for the hospice, whilst getting sponsored to tick each part of the challenge off your list.”
