Bluebell Place is Go!
We have been waiting with much excitement to let you all know that Bluebell has been awarded £165,130 from The Big Lottery Fund to open Bluebell Place! This funding is to lease and redecorate a high street property that will become a central Bristol hub, cafe, shop, drop-in and meeting place for parents affected by perinatal mental illness. There will be a whole menu of activities and workshops available for both mums and dads, many of which will be creative and involve lots of the parents we have supported over the years. On sale will be wonderful products, many made by some of the talented mums in Bristol that we've had the pleasure to know over the past four years, and of course, gorgeous cakes will be in plentiful supply. The main aim will be to provide a space where parents can just come and see us, have a cup of tea and spend time with someone who understands what they are going through, something that many of the mums and dads we've worked with have told us they would really value.
As many of you know, we have been dreaming of and working towards this for the past four years and so this is a very exciting day for Bluebell! I would like to say a huge thank you to the wonderful parents who have helped us to make this a reality and of course to the amazing Bluebell team who all work so hard and with so much love and passion for families. We look forward to seeing Bluebell Place open in the new year!
