Children supported by a North Anston hospice are helping to spread a message of hope and positivity through challenging times with a range of exclusive cards.

The limited edition ‘Kindness Cards’, which include beautiful designs hand-painted by children who visit Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, are a way for people to show others they are thinking of them.

Terri Hanson, head of retail at Bluebell Wood, said: “It’s been a turbulent start to the New Year for all of us and 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.

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

“While there 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.”

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

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.

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