Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice in Sheffield is "celebrating with lights" this evening. Sheffield Wednesday players Miguel Llera and Giles Coke will switch on hundreds of lights in the hospice garden - one for each individual Christmas donation.

Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice in Sheffield has launched a fundraising appeal with a difference. They're looking for volunteers to spend the night in jail in Doncaster.
This year’s event takes place on 20 February 2014 but the hospice need volunteers to sign up now. All "inmates" will be asked to raise £500 "bail money" before being released at the end of the day.
Local magistrate Liz Hepworth from Dronfield who took part in the event last year said: “Jail was a new experience for me, I had been responsible for sending people there as a magistrate but never been locked up myself.
“Being processed as a real prisoner was an interesting experience. I was very grateful to my friends for raising my bail and helping to raise funds for Bluebell Wood."
Anna Gott, Fundraiser at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice said: “This event is a fantastic way to raise money for the hospice and may be for the more rebellious of our supporters."
