CHILDREN’S Hospice South West will benefit from a year-long fundraising bid by staff at a Sidmouth business.

Fields bosses hope a campaign for their ‘Charity of The Year 2011’ will bring the best out of generous customers and boost terminally ill youngsters and their families- including some who live in the Sidmouth area.

The store last year raised more than �2,000 for the Ellie’s Haven charity and supported Devon Air Ambulance in 2009.

Staff are now looking forward to more fundraising exploits and collection tins will be placed at tills in the shop.
