A cancer support charity has brought out a novel way to fundraise.

Macmillan Cancer Support is encouraging people to host a virtual murder mystery night.

People that are interested in taking part and in raising money for the charity are asked to sign up at their website: gamesnight.macmillan.org.uk/whodunnit.html

A Virgin Money giving page will be set up by the host, so that friends and family can donate to help the charity.

Macmillan will then send out the character scripts and clues necessary to host the Whodunnit online event.

Other virtual games are also available to raise much needed funds for the organisation.

People can choose from a virtual quiz night or a board games night too.

Hosts wanting to hold a virtual quiz, board games night or murder mystery should sign up for a pack at the charity’s website.
