Skydive for Bluebell Woods Children’s Hospice 2019
On Sunday 8th September 2019, 6 members of the Blue Stream team will be buckling up for a 15,000ft skydive to raise money for an exceptional local charity - Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Based in North Ashton - Yorkshire, Bluebell Wood offers support to over 300 families caring for children and young adults between 0 – 25 years old, all with life limiting conditions. The hospice has 8 bedrooms for children & young adults, family accommodation and two ‘end-of-life’ suites known as Primose and Forget-me-not. Alongside this the hospice provides support for individuals across South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Lincolnshire.
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice relies on nearly £4.5 million to operate each year, with only 8.9% of this coming from government funding. For this reason, Blue Stream Academy are aiming to raise a minimum of £1000 to help this exceptional cause.
Our Skydiving Six, also known as Natalie, Brady, Emily, Lewis, John and Courteney, will be raising money in the run up to September to reach this goal.
