The Wonderful Steph, the Great North Run and Raising Funds for Bluebell Wood


The wonderful Steph, Sender of Hugs, is taking a place in the Great North Run next month! Steph has decided to use the opportunity to help raise funds for one of our lovely charity partners, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

We’ve been sending donation Hugs to Bluebell Wood families since last September, and we just love the support and positivity that Bluebell Wood bring to the children and families that they help.

Steph is a keen runner and felt really lucky to be selected for the Great North Run, which covers an impressive 13.1 miles! Starting from Newcastle City Centre and finishing in South Shields, it’s always a fun day for spectators and a certain test of endurance for the runners taking part. 

While Steph puts herself through her paces along the route, she thought it’d be even better if she could use the opportunity to fundraise for a charity that was close to her heart -Bluebell Wood.

If you feel able to give a little to help Steph reach her fundraising goal, that would be absolutely wonderful - every little bit of money adds up to helping Bluebell Wood to continue giving amazing support to families and helping them to make special memories together.

We’re all wishing Steph the very best of luck in her run - Team BearHugs will be cheering her on, whether near or far, and we hope you’ll all join us in supporting her too!
