Meadowhall Shopping Centre has dug deep to raise almost £125,000 in aid of St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield.

The shopping outlet’s two-year partnership with St Luke’s is set to end raising a huge £124,822.

Meadowhall bosses and staff have chipped in with a variety of fundraising events, including a gruelling walk across Hardrian’s Wall, which raised around £10,000, and a 452-mile Sheffield to Paris bike ride.

The shopping centre has today announced a new two-year charity partnership with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The hospice, based in North Anston, provide counselling, sibling support and a range of therapies for around 250 South Yorkshire families.

Rachael Dawes, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, said:“We are incredibly proud to have been chosen as Meadowhall’s Charity of the Year through 2016/17.

“Their efforts will make a huge positive difference to our children and families facing incredibly tough times.”

Meadowhall Centre Director Darren Pearce said: “We are delighted to have presented St Luke’s with such a significant sum of money which we hope will make a huge difference to the day-to-day running of the hospice.

“We now look forward to welcoming Bluebell Wood and making it a couple of years to remember for all involved.”
