Book a sunshine holiday and raise charity cash

A GRIMSBY travel agent is hoping it can lend a helping hand to grant the wishes of sick children.

Appleby's First Choice, on Abbeygate, is holding a special event today and tomorrow to raise vital funds for Wish Upon A Star. For every booking made to Florida and the tropical regions of Barbados, the Caribbean, Mexico or the Dominican Republic today and tomorrow, Appleby's will donate &194&16310 to the charity &8211 and Minnie and Mickey Mouse will be making a guest appearance. Pat Wright, fundraiser for Wish Upon A Star, said charity donations are now more important than ever. "We are taking 30 children to Centre Parcs soon and we are currently granting one wish per week, so donations are vital." First Choice manager Becky Wright said: "We saw an appeal for the charity in the Grimsby Telegraph and we really wanted to do something to help. It does a wonderful job but it is in desperate need of vital funds at the moment. "We will pick a different destination each month and donate &194&16310 from each booking to the charity.

"We are running this until August and are planning to host lots of other exciting fundraising events along the way."
