SINGER Louis Tomlinson asked Bluebell Wood if they needed any gifts for families — and bought everything on the charity’s Amazon wishlist.

The North Anston children’s hospice has a host of new toys and games thanks to the boyband star — a patron of the charity — and other supporters who helped at Christmas.

Bluebell Wood set up a wishlist on Amazon as a guide on the kind of gifts most appreciated by the youngsters who spend time at the hospice.

Emma Doughty, the hospice’s head of family support and wellbeing services, said: “It was a wonderful surprise to get a call from Louis’ team to let us know he wanted to give some gifts to our families.

“When he then decided to buy everything left on the list we were stunned. This was an amazing and unexpected bonus. He really is a star supporter of Bluebell Wood.”

She added: “Thanks to the generosity of everyone who has purchased from our wishlist we now have a fantastic supply of arts, crafts, books, sensory toys and games for our children and young adults to enjoy with their families whenever they are here.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to Louis and every other person who has made a purchase. It’s helping to make a huge difference to our families.”
