Its wide-ranging services include end of life treatment and care, music therapy, counselling, sibling support groups, home visits and much more. It costs more than £4 million for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice to keep its doors open each year and 90 per cent of this needs to be raised through community and corporate fundraising. Visit www.bluebellwood.org to make a donation or to find ideas for helping Bluebell Wood make more memories for the children it cares for.
