A VEHICLE shipping company has donated a £10,000 windfall to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Quinns Car Transport, based at Kiveton Park, scooped the cash in a raffle run by manufacturers Transporter Engineering.

The firm, which also exclusive use of a 25th anniversary edition EVO 12-car transporter for 12 months, has supported Bluebell Wood for the past four years.

Quinns logistics director Sam Dunmow said: “A few years ago we were invited to visit the hospice to hand over our first donation. Witnessing first-hand the great work they do inspired us to raise even more.

“When we won first prize at the Transporter Engineering evening we were thrilled but we got goose bumps when we found out how much money we’d won. 

“We know £10,000 will make such a difference at Bluebell Wood and enable them to carry on doing the amazing things they do.”

Isla Gill, sales and projects manager at Transporter Engineering, said: "We are delighted the staff at Quinns have decided to donate £10,000 to Bluebell Wood. We’re proud that we could be part of such a significant donation.”

Bluebell Wood corporate fundraiser David Hall added: “We’re so very grateful to Quinns for choosing Bluebell Wood, and to Transporter Engineering for making this amazing gift possible.

“This amount of money could pay for 480 hours of specialised nursing care, for several play sessions for all the children at Bluebell Wood and so much more.”
