The campaign has now expired but it's not too late to support this charity.


When Malcolm's father was cared for by St. Margaret's Hospice he saw first-hand the support, professionalism and sensitivity of St. Margarets Hospice and its staff, in return for this Malcolm has set up this campaign to raise money and give something back to the hospice.

Malcolm says: "To help, in some small way, to support the efforts of this wonderful charity I wanted to develop a simple, fun and entertaining concept that would perhaps help to inspire others to do something challenging (and a bit foolish!) for this tremendous cause.

The April Fools Challenge is exactly that. Its designed to be open to all ages and abilities and simply involves setting yourself a challenge (perhaps even a foolish one) that can be completed on or around April Fools Day.

It could be a run in your slippers, a cycle in your pyjamas or maybe just a cake baking contest. It doesnt matter, as long as its a challenge for you it qualifies you to be come an April Fool! :)

My hope is that this unique fundraising project can grow to be come a fun annual event that helps to provide an increasing donation to this brilliant charity."
