EVERYONE has heard of a fundraiser - but local recruitment firm Tate is holding its first ever fun-raiser to attract money for Grove House.

It is being held on Sunday, September 20, at the Old Verulamians Rugby Club off the North Orbital Road, St Albans.

As well as a barbecue, there will be a children's entertainer, games, a raffle and an auction with prizes including an official Arsenal biography signed by the team, a Vinopolis wine tour, a gliding lesson and a signed Watford football shirt.

One of the organisers, Nicola Marks, operations manager at Tate, said: "With so many great sponsors, prizes and entertainment, our fun-raiser is definitely a day that everyone can enjoy."

Paul Parrish, fundraising director at the hospice, said: "We are always delighted when local firms choose to support Grove House. There are many ways businesses can get involved from sponsoring an event to helping us with our design and print needs or organising an event of their own."

The fun-raiser will take place from 2pm until 5pm with the auction at 4pm. Admission is £2.50 for adults and children are free. Further details are available from Nicola or Eli at Tate on 01727 812854.
