Here’s a chance to throw custard over your boss… And record it on camera

Highland Hospice has revealed its plans to turn the Highlands yellow next month with its new Custard Challenge.

Fundraisers at the charity are urging people to get messy by nominating a boss, colleague, friend or family member to have custard thrown over them on camera.

They should then share the footage on social media with the hashtag #wearyellow to encourage others to do the same and donate to the hospice.

But if you don’t fancy being covered in pudding, then you can show your support by wearing yellow to work or school or by organising fundraising events with a yellow theme during the week from Monday-Sunday, April 24-30. Although activities can run at any time during the week, Friday, April 28, has been named ‘#wearyellow Day’.

The brand new hospice building on Bishops Road, Inverness, which opened its doors to patients last November, will be illuminated in yellow all week with fairy lights around the grounds. The city’s Eastgate Centre will be displaying a large yellow sunflower emblem on its building at Falcon Square, and Bobby the Bee the hospice mascot, will also buzz around encouraging supporters to join in the fun.

Community fundraiser, Carrie MacIntyre, said: “Last year’s Fundraising Week was a great success with around £13,000 being raised all over the Highlands. #wearyellow is a great way for anybody to get involved in supporting the Hospice, whatever your age or occupation. We can’t wait to see footage of the Custard Challenge and have already taken the opportunity to throw custard over our head of fundraising, Andrew Leaver, to promote the appeal of course!”

The suggested donation is £5 which can be texted by sending WYHH47 £5 (or other amount) to 70070.
