BLUEBELL Wood’s birthday bash showed just how the charity helps families create special and lasting memories.

The ninth anniversary party at the North Anston children’s hospice on Sunday (17) featured dancing, face-painting and princesses.

Children and adults joined in games and met Minions characters as well as Bluebell Wood’s own mascot, springer spaniel George.

Chief executive Claire Rintoul said: “We’d just like to say a really big thank you to everyone who joined us. 

“It was a fantastic way to spend some fun time with families, friends and supporters from across the region and to give people who haven’t visited us before a chance to find out more about our work.

“From music therapy to sibling support groups, we do a lot more at Bluebell Wood than many people realise. 

“We’re all about living with love and laughter and our Birthday Bash is an opportunity for everyone to get involved and find out some of the ways we do that.”

Supporting the day were Star Wars costume group 99th Garrison, Sweet Cheeks Face Painting Service, Markham Main Colliery Band, Funky Dance Fever, South Yorkshire Police Cadets and The Magical Memories Foundation.
