Molly Hardy recently helped Blu crew at Meadowhall during a carol singing event to raise money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. We asked her about her first experience volunteering and here’s what she had to say: –
“Hi, my name is Molly and I am 14 years old. I spend my time doing my coursework for school and spending my time with family. I spend every weekend at my Nan’s. I love to help people in any way possible, just to see the smile on their faces. I adore dogs. I have two dogs, Gizmo and Buster. I couldn’t imagine life without them.
I became involved with Blu Crew when I went to see them to do a performance on a Saturday night and loved every minute of it. I volunteered to help out the next day when they were doing a performance at Meadowhall. I went the next day and enjoyed myself even more. It made me feel so happy how generous people are, especially a hospice close to heart. Since then I have been helping out.”
When asked: what did you enjoy most about the event?
“Seeing people joining in a dancing with their little kids and seeing how generous people are. Hearing people say how good Blu Crew were singing and saying how much they enjoyed it made it even more special. Knowing where all the money was going made you feel even more grateful for how kind people still are.
They were saying how good they were singing and saying it made their day just seeing them. I spoke to a women and she said it was her last Christmas, which broke my heart into a thousand pieces, but made me realise what this money can do and what people/kids are going through day to day. Some said “You all deserve the best Christmas for doing this from the kindness from your hearts.” One person said “This is better then what you find on The X Factor” which made me giggle a little.
Thank you to everyone part of Blu Crew for looking after me, I’ve loved every minute! Well done to Blu Crew because you sing amazing.”
Molly really enjoyed her time with Blu crew and has said that she would be willing to help us at future events; we are really grateful for her help and look forward to seeing her again soon.
