CHILDREN'S Hospice South West supporters at Atlantic Village will be making a big splash for the charity tomorrow (Friday) - in their wellies!

Staff at the Bideford outlet shopping village will be joining scores of businesses and schools throughout the region taking part in the hospice's annual Wear Your Wellies Day fundraising event.

Staff at the North Devon Gazette in Barnstaple will also be paying their pound to take part and help the hospice continue to provide respite, palliative and end of life care for life-limited children and support their families in facing an uncertain future.

Ian Roome, community fundraiser for Children's Hospice South West said: "Lots of schools and companies have registered to take part which is great news."
