A BIG-HEARTED North Anston schoolgirl asked her friends for money instead of gifts for her birthday so she could donate the money to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Amelia Clark from North Anston raised £57, following in the footsteps of her big sister, who has been donating to Bluebell Wood for the last ten years.
The donations have become a regular thing for each of the family’s three children. And its meaning for them was amplified after friends Callum Smith and Niamh Power who were cared for at the hospice passed away earlier this year.
Seven-year-old Amelia said: “Bluebell Wood is a very special calm place. It is important that people raise as much money as possible to make sure it is always there for children and families that need it.”
Bluebell Wood fundraiser Caroline Artschan added: “At the age of seven, most children are wrapped up in the excitement of receiving birthday presents, but this very generous little girl has a huge heart helping those less fortunate than herself and we can’t thank her enough for her kindness.”
Amelia presented her birthday money to the hospice last week when she visited with her older sister Charlotte.
