Have you got LEGO hiding under the bed or sitting unloved in a drawer? Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is asking people to bring their old bricks into one of their ten shops, and help them raise money for local children and families.
The hospice, which cares for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions, has even created their own video – featuring an array of generous minifigures – to encourage people to donate.
Joanne Ward, Retail Support Co-ordinator at Bluebell Wood, said: “We all know how easy it is for LEGO to gather dust in the loft or at the back of the cupboard. At Bluebell Wood, we want to give your leftover LEGO a new lease of life, by collecting, sorting and selling your old bricks online.
“In March we raised an incredible £360 just from selling LEGO on our eBay shop, which could pay for 24 play sessions filled with lots of love and laughter. With your help, we hope to double that figure in April, which will help us create even more special memories for our children and families. If you would like to get involved, simply drop your old LEGO into one of our ten shops.”
