A local children’s hospice is set to benefit from a charity kiosk opening within Hillsborough Stadium.
Catering company The Lindley Group, in partnership with Sheffield Wednesday and the Community Programme, will open the Bluebell Wood kiosk in the Grandstand.
The branded kiosk will be operational from the Wolves game, to coincide with the relaunch of the family area, and will be staffed by volunteers from the SWFC Community Programme.
Lindley will donate the equivalent wages of the volunteers to Bluebell Wood; the chosen charity of Football in the Community.
The kiosk will have new offerings for younger fans with smaller portions and healthier options available to supporters visiting this kiosk.
Lindley General Manager Dean Stones said: “Lindley Venue Catering are proud to be associated with this exciting new venture.”
The club’s CSR Development Manager Spencer Taylor added: “Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice are the charity partners of the SWFC Community Programme so we are delighted to be playing our part in raising funds for such a worthy cause.”
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, which costs £3 million each year to run, offers care and support to children with a shortened life expectancy, both in their homes and at the facility in North Anston.
Acting Chief Executive of Bluebell Wood Heidi Megaughin said: “It’s fantastic to be the chosen charity of Football in the Community and we’re very much looking forward to working with them this year.
“We’re thrilled with the kiosk it looks absolutely fabulous, and it’s a great way for us to raise our profile and create awareness within the local community about our work.”
