BLUEBELL Wood children can enjoy more trips out after the children’s hospice bought a mobility vehicle thanks to a £15,495 grant.

The charity bought the specially-adapted Peugeot Horizon after being nominated for the money by Eurovia Contracting North through the Vinci UK Foundation.

Bluebell Wood trust and legacy advisor Julie Booth said: “While we provide a lot of support to children and young adults in their own homes, there are some families that would like to come to the hospice more often but are unable to get here. 

“Staff will now be able to use our new car to go and pick them up. We will also be able to use it to take more of our children on day trips, which is really exciting.

“We’re incredibly grateful to Eurovia Contracting North and Vinci UK Foundation. This really will make a big difference to families facing the toughest of times in all the areas Bluebell Wood supports.”

Eurovia finance and admin manager Cheryl Freeman said: “I hope that the new mobility vehicle can provide families with the support they need to be able to use the facilities at the hospice.”
