Partnership with hospice continues to prosper.On Saturday 24th October, although Rovers were playing away at Peterborough, the club joined in partnership once more with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in a fun-filled fundraising event at Keepmoat
The Bluebell Wood ‘Night Of Neon’ sponsored walk around Lakeside was hosted from Car Park 1 at Keepmoat Stadium.
As twilight turned to darkness crowds of supporters of the hospice and the football club gathered to begin the sponsored walk. Adults and children donned Fancy Dress, and illuminated themselves with ‘glo-sticks’ and neon lights to light up the dark surrounds of the Lakeside.
Music played and Jo Berry (Bluebell Wood) hyped up the atmosphere for everyone via the PA system in anticipation of the excitement which lay ahead. Volunteers on behalf of the hospice themed several spooky areas around the lake in order to add to the merriment and excitement. Everyone had a wonderful time in raising funds for the hospice, which does such magnificent work on behalf of children and their families in our region.
Charles Swallow of Doncaster Rovers said: “The club has had a wonderful relationship with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice over a number of years now, and it is always a pleasure to be able to offer any assistance (no matter how small) in helping to raise vital funds to enable this wonderful establishment to carry out its valuable work.
“It was an exciting and colourful event; everyone greatly enjoyed the occasion. Doncaster Rovers will look forward to helping Bluebell Wood to re-create the ‘Night Of Neon’ once again in 2016.”
The staff from Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice should like to thank all the sponsored walkers who took part in fundraising during this extremely enjoyable and successful event.
