South Yorkshire charity, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, has confirmed the addition of four new trustees who joined their board this month.

The trustees, who all dedicate their free time to the roles, are expected to play a vital part in ensuring that Bluebell Wood continues to support families who are going through the most difficult times.

It is hoped that their combined expertise will broaden and enhance the already highly skilled and experienced team of trustees at the North Anston based hospice.

The new trustees are: Scott Green, a Police Superintendent in Rotherham, where he is responsible for all operational policing.

Joining him as a trustee is Sally Napper, a qualified children’s and adult nurse.

Sally has been has been a Director of Nursing and Operational services for the last 15 years.

Richard Worth has also been added to the board.

Before becoming a trustee, Richard trained in Sheffield, Hull and Newcastle upon Tyne before spending 25 years as a consultant physician.

Professor of Education at the University of Sheffield, Elizabeth Wood is the fourth new trustee.

Chair of Trustees Kath Henderson said: “I am really pleased to welcome Scott, Sally, Richard and Liz to Bluebell Wood and to working with them as we invest and develop to continue providing the very best care and support for children and families who depend on our services. All four bring different yet complementary experience to the board, which is essential in continuing best practice in every aspect of the care and service we provide for the children and young people with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions at the hospice and in the wider community.
