FIREFIGHTERS from Rotherham have donated a television to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in North Anston.

The big-hearted firefighters paid for the television with the proceeds of an open day held at their station.

The event at Aston Park fire station raised £265, and crew members asked staff at the children’s hospice what they would like the cash to be spent on.

The hospice offers care and support to children with life limiting conditions who are not expected to reach adulthood.

It costs £2.5 million every year to run and the hospice receives no government funding.

Mark Jones, Watch Manager at Aston Park fire station, said: “We are really pleased that we were able to help Bluebell Wood.

“The work they do there is amazing.

“Hopefully the television will bring hours of fun for all the children there, and their families.”
