Poland's Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (WOSP) organisation is holding its 28th Finale on Sunday. WOSP volunteers countrywide are gathering funds into their distinctive collection boxes.

This year's collection will fund paediatric equipment.

Some 120,000 volunteers are taking part in this year's Finale. More than 1,760 collection offices have been set up, including around 100 abroad.

The Finale is accompanied by a large number of events, including concerts, sports competitions, auctions and outdoor performances.

The foundation collected nearly PLN 176 mln (EUR 40.7 mln) in last year's finale.

Medical equipment for children hospitals has already been purchased with part of the money raised.
