Easter Donation from the UCM to Bluebell Wood Hospice

On Wednesday 17th May 2023 during the meeting of the Union of Catholic Mothers at St. Vincents Church In Crookes, Sheffield, Dr. Caroline Anderson spoke to us about her work at Bluebell Wood, Dinnington, Sheffield.

She is a music therapist and has worked there for seven years.

Bluebell Wood was opened in September 2008 and cares for children, young adults and their families giving them respite and short, much needed breaks. It has helped hundreds of children from across South Yorkshire, Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and parts of North Lincolnshire.

Support is given to parents and their siblings, and particularly during the last moments of their child’s life.

Over the years donations have been vital to help pay for day trips and to fund sessions of sensory play.

The St. Vincent’s Foundation of Catholic Mothers were delighted to give Caroline a cheque for £520 for Bluebell Wood, as the Easter Donation from the UCM members and friends of the Parish.
