On Thursday 8th August we were honoured to present a cheque for £1000 to Bluebell Woods Children’s Hospice in Sheffield, nominated by the dietitians at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
The dream of Bluebell Wood began in 1998, with the vision to help families in the area who wanted an alternative to hospital care. Fundraising started when 11-year-old Richard and his mum wanted him to pass away at home.
Ten years later, on 19th September 2008, the doors were opened to the first families who needed them. Since then, they’ve supported hundreds ofchildren from across South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and parts of North Lincolnshire.They believe that every family deserves to make magical memories with their child, whether they have years, months, weeks or days together.Bluebell Wood is a home from home for families facing the toughest of times, with a comfy lounge and beautiful gardens.
There’s also plenty of fun activities for children to try, including soft play, arts and crafts, music therapy and much more.To find out more, or to make a donation, visit https://www.bluebellwood.org>
