The Noah's Ark Children's Hospice £50 challenge is asking local businesses to see how much they can raise for charity, based on an initial investment of £50 from a local investor.

The hospice supports babies, children and young people throughout north and central London. Cash raised will support young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.

The business that raises the most will be honoured at an awards event in October this year.

Noah's Ark wants people to put their innovative minds to the test to raise as much as possible by the end of September.
