PARENTS who have been supported by Bluebell Wood have organised a night of magic, music and dancing for the charity.

The Forget Me Not Ball will begin with tricks and illusions from Afro Magic, followed by a three-course meal and a performance from 2016 X-Factor contestant James Wilson.

It will also include a disco run by Bluebell Wood parent Amanda Steele, auction and a raffle with more than 30 prizes at Rotherham’s Holiday Inn on Saturday, November 18.

Parents who have organised the fundraiser include Charlotte and Gareth Mayor, from Wickersley, and Thurcroft couple Jo and Jonathan Tennick.

“It will be an amazing night,” said Charlotte, whose baby daughter Elsa died at the North Anston children’s hospice in 2015.

“There will be fabulous entertainment and it will be full of love and laughter, as Bluebell Wood is. 

“We are all inspired by the time we spent at Bluebell Wood with our children, and by the love and care we still receive there. 

“The hospice is a very important part of our lives and we want to give something back. 

“Through Bluebell Wood we have all become such good friends and want to not only raise money, but show everyone what a wonderful place Bluebell Wood is.”

Bluebell Wood community fundraiser Anna Gott said: “The Forget Me Not Ball will be a fantastic evening and give guests an opportunity to help make a real difference to families across the region.

“Every penny raised on the night will really help families in a whole range of ways, just when they need it most.”

Tickets are £30 and available by contacting Charlotte on charlotte.mayor76@gmail.com or 07515 789676.
