MEADOWHALL’S two-year partnership with Bluebell Wood netted £128,000 for the children’s hospice.

Fundraising efforts from the shopping centre included an abseil from its central dome and a charity single by folk singer Kate Rusby.

Meadowhall centre director Darren Pearce said: “We’re absolutely delighted that the incredible efforts of our retailers, shoppers, partners and colleagues.

“It’s hugely important to us as a premium fashion and lifestyle destination to give something back to worthwhile causes across our region, and in its support of families in their hour of need, Bluebell Wood certainly fits the bill.”

Rachael Dawes, the charity’s community fundraising manager, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Meadowhall and every single person who played their part in helping to raise this amazing total. 

“This money will make all the difference to the children and young adults we support and help them enjoy so many things, from arts and crafts and music to movie nights and trips out.”
