Children supported by Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice are helping to spread a message of hope and positivity through the challenging times ahead with a range of exclusive Kindness Cards.

The limited edition cards - which include beautiful designs hand-painted by children who visit the hospice - are the perfect way to show someone you’re thinking of them.

Whether it’s a grandparent shielding, a teacher who’s gone above and beyond or someone whose day you just want to brighten, the charity’s Kindness Cards make for a very welcome surprise during the long days of lockdown. 

The cards, which also have space for a personalised message, can be ordered from Bluebell Wood’s online shop here.

Terri Hanson, Head of Retail at Bluebell Wood, said: “It’s been a turbulent start to the New Year for all of us so we really wanted to do something positive that will help put a smile on people’s faces.

“So we decided to put some of the wonderful artwork the children who visit us for respite care have created to good use.

“While they may be more distance than we’d like with the important people in our lives, there’s nothing to stop us sending them a lovely surprise in the post to brighten up their day."

“Bluebell Wood’s Kindness Cards are also a great way for us to raise funds to support local families at a time when all our charity shops are closed as a result of the latest restrictions.

“Our network of shops help raise much-needed funds to support our life-changing work so each card we sell will help us continue to be there for the families that need us in these most challenging of times.”

Although the charity’s network of shops are temporarily closed, Bluebell Wood has an online shop as well as an eBay page which stocks everything from top High Street fashion brands to curious collectibles.

There are always plenty of bargains up for grabs on the page which can be found here.

Bluebell Wood needs to raise almost £14,000 each day to keep its door open, and with its ability to raise funds significantly impacted by the pandemic, now more than ever the charity needs the support of the communities it serves.
