Millers star’s pride at working for Bluebell Wood

MILLERS midfielder Will Vaulks told of his pride at becoming Bluebell Wood’s newest ambassador.

The 24-year-old, who signed for Rotherham United in 2016, volunteers weekly with the children’s hospice.

He has worked with the fundraising team, supported the care team — and encouraged his team-mates to help with donations of clothes and toys.

Will said: “Since I first came to Rotherham United, I’ve become aware of the valuable work Bluebell Wood does for families facing the toughest times of their lives. 

“It’s a privilege to do my bit for such a worthwhile cause. I’d like to continue doing my best to help this charity raise funds and encourage more supporters from across the region to give their best.”

Will has been made an ambassador of the North Anston charity in recognition of his efforts over the past 18 months.

Bluebell Wood community fundraiser Anna Gott said: “Will has been a brilliant support here at the hospice. 

“He’s also inspired a lot of his team-mates at Rotherham to do their bit by making numerous donations of clothes and toys to our shops. 

“He recently came along to our Fun-draising Club Christmas party, which was a great surprise for our members, and really involved himself in all the party games, thanking all our young fundraisers for their support and hard work. 

“We’re delighted to have Will on board as an ambassador and are sure he’ll continue to do a fantastic job spreading the word about Bluebell Wood.”
