Howells Solicitors have been fundraising to support local charity Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice by raising money through competitions and prize draws.

The Rotherham law firm ran a competition to win a huge chocolate box, with all donations going to the charity. The winner was Julie Roden.

They managed to raise £38 for their charity of the year Bluebell Wood, an amazing charity who care for children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy.
