A CHRISTMAS grotto at the Piece Hall, Halifax, is raising funds for the West Yorkshire Forget-me-Not Children’s Hospice.

It is run by Encore Events UK, which is donating 10 per cent of its profits to the hospice.

The Grotto at The Piece Hall will be open tomorrow from 4pm to 8pm and the following two Saturdays, closing at 1pm on Christmas Eve.

The hospice, in Bradley, Huddersfield, is now complete and the care team expect to begin working with children and families in the hospice in 2012.

Around £2.5 million will have to be raised annually to fund the hospice which will serve Calderdale. Staff also offer a “hospice at home” service.
