Huge Support for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice at Children 1st @St Peter & St Paul Garden Party
We are delighted to announce that our recent Garden Party, held with our friends and neighbours, Children 1st @ Chesterfield Royal Hospital, raised over £1400 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Based in Sheffield the charity aims to provide care and support for children with shortened life expectancy both in their own homes and at their hospice in North Anston. Bluebell Wood relies on public donations for 95% of its funding. Here at St Peter and St Paul we are really pleased to show our support for their excellent work.
In addition to raising money, the Garden Party provided fun for everyone, as people turned out in droves to enjoy a lovely afternoon and to part with their money for such a worthy cause.
With plenty of stalls and activities there was much to keep our visitors entertained as the sun shone down on us all. Children were delighted to see both Peppa Pig and Elsa the Snow Queen from Disney’s Frozen attend the party, and loved being transformed for the afternoon by some expert face painting.
With the tombola and the raffle there was plenty of opportunity to pick up a prize. As always, the cake stall was a firm favourite. With such delicious goods for sale, no wonder they sold out in record time! The bouncy castle was put to good use to burn off excess energy and rides on the miniature railway kept young visitors well entertained.
Thank-you to everyone who supported our Garden Party and gave so generously to support Bluebell Wood. If you would like to know more about the charity, please visit www.bluebellwood.org
