Supercars at Meadowhall
Meadowhall and its visitors have raised more than £32k for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, which supports children and young adults with life-shortening conditions, as well as their families.
A total of £32,358.70 was raised through ticket sales and donations at the popular Supercars event last week, hosted by the centre in partnership with Bluebell Wood and Supercar Driver.
Visitors had the opportunity to see more than 70 of the impressive cars up close, including models from Aston Martin, Lamborghini, McLaren, Ferrari, and Porsche, as well as iconic family-favourites such as Batman’s Batmobile and Lightning McQueen from the animated film, Cars.
In return for a donation to the charity, fans were also able to snap a picture in the driving seat or take a spin as a passenger in some of the cars, as well as enjoy a wide range of family-friendly activities throughout the day.
Darren Pearce, centre director at Meadowhall, said: “It was great to see such a brilliant turnout at the Supercars event and give so many people the chance to see some of the world’s most iconic cars up close at Meadowhall.
“We’re proud to have a long-term partnership with Bluebell Wood and we know this funding will go a long way to help the incredible work the team does to support local children and their families. We’re incredibly grateful to our visitors for their continued generosity and support.”
David Martin, Head of Fundraising at Bluebell Wood, said: “The Supercars event at Meadowhall was a huge success and we were so touched by the generosity of our local community. We are over the moon with the total amount Meadowhall, and visitors have helped us to raise, which will allow us to continue supporting families when they need it the most.”
