Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is a home from home for families facing the toughest of times offering care for children and young adults whose lives are sadly just too short, both in their own homes and at our hospice in North Anston. Every day, the hospice needs to raise almost £14,000 to keep its doors open, as only around 15% of its funding is from the government.

Sheffield’s Metro Bank store manager Chris Gore said: “It’s a mammoth challenge, but we are up for it.

“We want to raise as much as we can for such a fantastic charity.”
