Fox Valley announce new charity link with children’s hospice

24 June 2019

Retailers at Fox Valley have chosen Sheffield based Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice as their chosen charity to support for the next year.

Since opening in June 2016, the Fox Valley team and customers have raised money for Stocksbridge Community Leisure Centre through various events and fundraising activities. 

The new charity partnership with Bluebell Wood was launched at Fox Valley’s annual Food and Music Festival which took place on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June.

Over £200 was raised throughout the weekend for Bluebell Wood thanks to the generosity of festival-goers, and more fundraising events planned for the near future.

Bluebell Wood care for children and young adults who suffer with life threatening and life shortening illnesses, both in their own homes and at their hospice in North Anston.

Fox Valley’s Events Manager Kayleigh Marron said: “We are really delighted to be supporting Bluebell Wood for the next year, it is such a worthy cause and we are really excited to plan exciting fundraisers for the charity!”

Julie Hampson, Corporate Fundraiser at Bluebell Wood added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Fox Valley retailers as their charity of the year, and are looking forward to an exciting year of sharing our message of love and laughter with staff and shoppers. 

“At Bluebell Wood, we support over 300 families every year, and this includes many children from the Sheffield area. Most of our funding comes from fundraising in our local communities; and partnerships like this one with Fox Valley mean we can carry on providing this vital support to families”
