Rhyme raises cash for charity.

A CREATIVE rhyme has helped a Warwickshire firm raise much more than a dime for charity.

Harrison Beale & Owen, based in Leamington and Coventry, commissioned a poem which includes a number of personal anecdotes to describe the business and financial advisors.

It was created by Warwickshire entertainer Judge The Poet, who performs unique and on-the-spot poetry at events across the world.

The rhyme was donated as an auction prize for the firm's charity dinner, which was held in support of the Shakespeare Hospice. It attracted a combined bid of PS1,000 from HB&O directors Rob Kendall and Phil Ewing.

Sarah Wilson, associate director at HB&O, organised the event as part of the charity's Nifty Fifty Challenge, which encourages supporters to raise as much money as possible from an initial PS50.

She said: "The charity dinner and dance was a great success and we are extremely pleased to have been able to raise money for the Shakespeare Hospice."
