Fischers at Baslow Hall held a charity luncheon for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice which raised £1,475.50 to help children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy in this region.
30 guests enjoyed a glass of sparkling wine along with crisps and olives served in the lounge, before sitting down to a specially designed menu featuring twice baked goats cheese soufflé, crispy confit duck leg with honey & orange glaze and pear and frangipane tart with vanilla ice cream. As well as raising a fantastic amount for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, guests enjoyed the fine dining experience. Joy Bramley, one of the diners, commented “The lunch at Fischers was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and the food and service was exceptional.” Margaret Marshall added “As frequent visitors for lunch the meal was superb as usual, full of flavour and superbly presented and served. They never fail in providing an excellent occasion”.
Sarah Champion, Chief Executive of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, commented “I’d like to thank Max and Susan Fischer for choosing to support Bluebell Wood for their annual charity lunch, Wellocks and Premier Cheese for donating items for the menu, all the diners who supported the event and everybody who donated raffle prizes for the day, which raised an additional £165. Without the support of local businesses like Fischer’s, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice would not be able to help as many local children and their families as we do”.
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice cares for children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy. The hospice offers planned respite care, emergency care and end of life care to children in South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and North West Lincolnshire. We estimate that there are 500 children in this region who could benefit from the support of Bluebell Wood. It costs £2.5 million every year to provide this care, and with no statutory government funding, public support is vital to the success of the hospice.
Raffle prizes included Bottle of Champagne (donated by Bluebell Wood Hospice), Aromatherapy Massage or Reiki Treatment (donated by Ann Heesterman), Selection of Hair Products (donated by The Stage in Baslow), Templespa Aromatherapy Candle (donated by Judy Bull), A Classic Facial (donated by Lynda V.

Price), Portrait in The Park (1 hour photo shoot) donated by Tony Hall, Two Crystal Glasses and two bottles of Harvey’s Bristol Cream (donated by Chris Longden).
