Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is sending out a heartfelt thank you to its supporters in the business community after its first ever  Business Expo was hailed as a huge success.

Held in association with the Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, the event saw some of the best and brightest local businesses gather to network, meet new customers and build relationships.

With a roving magician, fascinating guest speakers and some delicious treats courtesy of Staniforth’s Gingerbread George, there was plenty of fun to be had along the way.

As well as bringing like-minded businesses together, the event also helped raise much needed funds for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Ruth Wallbank, Regional Fundraising Manager at Bluebell Wood, said: “We’d like to say a sincere thank you to our amazing supporters in the business community for making our first ever Bluebell Wood Business Expo such a huge success.

“It was amazing to see so many community-spirited business and individuals come together, and it’s truly humbling that they did so in support of Bluebell Wood.

“Thanks to your support, we can continue to be there for local children and families through some of the toughest times they’ll ever face.”
