BARNSLEY Hospice is appealing for everyone to wear orange clothes and make a donation during Hospice Care Week.

The go orange campaign is being run from Monday, October 5 to Sunday, October 11.

On Friday, October 9, businesses, schools and groups of friends are being encouraged to wear orange clothes and make a minimum donation of £1 towards Barnsley Hospice.

Barnsley Hospice shops will be taking part in a variety of fundraising events during the week to help raise awareness of the difference hospice care makes to hundreds of families every year.

Anyone who would like to get involved should contact the Barnsley Hospice Fundraising Team on 01226 244244 for more information.
