THE third Acorns Hospice is up and running in Worcester, but the fund-raising goes on.

To help raise those much-needed funds, Acorns is looking for intrepid fund-raisers who'd like to add a little spice to their lives in the form of a 10-day adventure in India.

They are seeking a team of trekkers to travel to one of the most exciting countries in the world and set off on a journey from Delhi through Rajasthan's villages and onward to the foothills of the stunning Aravali mountain range.

"This is a trip-of-a-lifetime opportunity, the kind of opportunity that sadly many of our children will not get to experience," says Caroline Taylor, of Acorns.

"By helping, people can help make the most of every child's life, however short."

To find out more about joining the Acorns India Trek, which takes place from October 1-11, call Acorns on 0121 248 4801.
