Metro Bank Colleagues Raise £600 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice

 Colleagues from Metro Bank’s Sheffield store have exercised collectively over 3,200 miles to raise £610 for the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is a home from home for families facing the toughest of times offering care for children and young adults whose lives are sadly just too short, both in their own homes and at our hospice in North Anston.   Every day, the hospice needs to raise almost £14,000 to keep its doors open, as only around 15% of its funding is from  government sources.

Shannon Gossage, Regional Fundraiser at Bluebell Wood, said: “This a fantastic and no doubt very tiring achievement so we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who went the extra mile for Bluebell Wood.

 “Thanks to the support of businesses like Metro Bank we can continue to be there for the children and families who need our support now more than ever.”

 “We are so happy that all our efforts have raised so much money for this fantastic local charity,” commented Sheffield’s Metro Bank store manager Chris Gore. “Huge thanks to everyone who took part and the customers, family and friends who supported us.”

Metro Bank’s Sheffield store can be found at 58-64 Fargate, Sheffield, S1 2HE. The store is currently open Monday – Saturday 08:30am - 6pm. Sunday: 11am - 5pm
