JUNE 21 is the day you need to be prepared to bare it all at work… your legs that is.

“Shorts for Hospice” is an initiative hoping to raise money for the Lake Taupo Hospice. Companies participating are encouraged to donate $250 to the local charity, with larger companies encouraged to make a larger contribution.

Hospice chairman Alane vane said the charity needs to raise $1 million in donations per year for ongoing costs.

“Every dollar raised from the day goes towards enabling our team of nurses, doctors, social workers, counsellors and volunteers to ensure we provide the highest quality palliative care services”.
