Friends for over 20 years, Alison Perry (who works at KCom Group), Sarah Cullumbine (teacher at St Bede’s Primary, Kimberworth)
“My sister works at Bluebell Wood Hospice so we’ve seen how valuable the work they do there is,” said Emma. “When she mentioned the Jail and Bail fundraiser, we thought it would be a good experience while also raising some much needed funds for a worthwhile cause. Now the date’s getting closer, we’re all getting a little bit nervous and just hoping to raise enough bail money to be released! We’re very grateful to Oxley & Coward for giving us a good start!”
Needing help to get out prison, Alison, Emma and Sarah turned to local experts Oxley & Coward Solicitors LLP where the Crime department agreed to give their bid for bail money a boost and support the regions Children’s hospice.
“When we’re normally approached by people faced with the likelihood of going to prison, they’ve not usually volunteered to go!” said Matthew Burdon, partner of the Crime section at Oxley and Coward. “But Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is a very worthwhile charity and Oxley & Coward are pleased to be able to support Alison, Emma and Sarah in their efforts to get released from Doncaster Prison next week and raise lots of money for the hospice.”
Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice supports children in South Yorkshire, and the North Midlands with a shortened life expectancy. The charity provides ongoing medical respite care for the child, practical and emotional support for family members, bereavement support and end of life care. It costs Bluebell Wood £3 million every year to offer this support with no statutory government funding.
