ROSSENDALE Hospice is encouraging people to say cheese in a bid to raise some extra cash.

So whether you've a big beaming smile or a toothy grin, the message is 'show your teeth' and smile your way to raising funds.

Fund-raiding manager Liz Nelson said: "Smiling makes everyone feel better, whether you're the giver or receiver of a smile.

"It's also something that is so easy to do that everyone can join in. After all, the hospice is 15 years old this year and that's certainly something to smile about."

The hospice is inviting children, and adults, to get involved with a sponsored smile day on February 20.

A special fund-raising pack is available from the hospice by calling Liz on 01706 240081 and leaving your name and address.
