Rother Valley MP Kevin Barron has called for more support for Bluebell Wood Childrens’ Hopsice.

At a Westminster Hall debate, Mr Barron said: “Bluebell Wood cares for over 170 children, providing highly specialised care for patients with complex medical needs, and offers complete support for families.”

“It costs over £3 million a year and takes 90 staff and 350 volunteers to provide these vital services and I applaud them all.”

“Whilst adult hospices receive on average 34 per cent of their funding from Government, children’s hospices typically receive much less, on average 15 per cent of their running costs, and Bluebell Wood receives less than five per cent.”
