Colourful fundraiser boosts Bluebell Wood coffers

KEY workers’ children signed off from a challenging school year with clouds of colour thanks to Bluebell Wood.

Many of the youngsters in the Anston Greenlands Primary “bubble” have been at lessons throughout the pandemic - some even during holidays.

The children’s hospice’s treat last week gave a sneak peek of the Colour Throw, which has replaced the flagship Colour Dash for this year.

Headteacher Alex Wirth thanked Bluebell Wood and said: “Some of our children have been in school without a break throughout lockdown so this was such a wonderful way to finish their term.”

Colour Throw involves the charity sending out packs of powdered paints for supporters to hold their own messy mini event at home.

Bluebell Wood head of fundraising Sam Wood said: “It was wonderful to see the children and teachers having so much fun and such a lovely way to end the school year.

“Whether you’re a school, business or you want to take part in your own garden, our Colour Throw is open to everyone.”
