Girl band visit children at Bluebell Wood

Children and families at Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice were treated to an exclusive music performance on Wednesday when girl band M.O dropped by for a special visit.

Saturday, 28th January 2017, 5:00 pm

The singers, Annie Ashcroft, Frankee Connolly and Nadine Samuels, met children, staff and volunteers at the hospice, and performed their hit songs ‘Not in Love’ and ‘Who Do You Think Of’. They also spent time posing for photographs and giving out merchandise.

The group decided to visit Bluebell Wood after hearing about Lex Strong, a little boy who sadly passed away at the hospice when he was just seven years old after being diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer.

Annie said: “It was a special moment for us to come and visit Bluebell. Having heard about Lex’s story and the amazing things the team at Bluebell do, I really wanted to come down and show them support.”
