bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is celebrating success after winning a share of £100,000 in a community vote.

The Doncaster hospice won £350 as part of Kumho Tyres’ ‘Cash for Causes’ campaign.

The Cash for Causes initiative saw Kumho Tyres give away more than £100,000 to deserving local charities, groups and projects, through its network of ECSTA Performance Centre (EPC) independent tyre retail partners.

Over 200 EPC retailers across the country signed up to take part in the campaign, each selecting two local community projects they felt deserved a donation. The community projects then went head to head in a public vote to see which one the community felt should receive the larger share.

DD Tyres Ltd, the Kumho EPC retailer in Doncaster, nominated Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and Doncaster Lions as their worthy recipients.

Doncaster Lions also received a share of the £100,000 fund - £150 - and intends to use the money to support various worthy local community causes.
