Capstone North enjoyed a few celebrations recently  – we had a new Barnsley office warming party in aid of McMillan Cancer Charity and raised over £80, which will be added to the money raised by Denshaw and Preston offices and doubled by Capstone. We also celebrated the fantastic achievements of three of our young people, one of whom was recently awarded a Pride of Rotherham Award for raising money for charities.

His foster carer sent the following email: “Hi everyone. Just want to say thank you from me and C for a great morning we really enjoyed ourselves C loved it he said when can I go there again.”

Thanks to everyone who baked, ate or donated and came along to our events to support us – you made it fun as well as profitable!

With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve teamed up with the fantastic team at Behind The Magic Door to bring you an exclusive discount of 40% off their gorgeous personalised children’s books!

These books make the ideal gift for any special little ones and are a great bedtime story for kids ages 0-8. Every story is different and unique to each child, so B-E-N would have a different story to T-H-O-M-A-S, and K-A-T-I-E would be different to S-O-P-H-I-E.

Rather than simply inserting your child’s name into a template, Behind The Magic Door let you create your own characters and build an adventure based on their name, e.g. SHELLY would have a story based around a Snake, Hyena, Elephant, Lion, Llama and a Yeti.

These books normally cost £19.99 each and come with FREE delivery worldwide, but as a special gift to our foster carers and Capstone family, we are offering 40% off! Simply enter code foster40 into the Discount Code box during online checkout to receive your Capstone exclusive deal.


Little Princess TrustFoster carer Sarah, her daughters and foster child have had their hair cut for a charity that creates wigs for children who have suffered hair loss.

They have teamed up with others from their local primary school for the big chop, after a son of a friend, George, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in January 2016. George has suffered with hair loss and his big sister wanted to raise awarenesss by cutting her hair and donating it to The Little Princess Trust. Other families got involved having seen first hand how George’s treatment has affected him and his family.

Families at the school were also compelled to raise awareness when tragically, in February 2016 there was the loss of a much loved parent, Sue Kendall, leaving behind her husband, young family including Jack who attends Woolston Community Primary and many close friends from the area.

The children have stepped forward from Woolston Community Primary School to show support and raise awareness following a difficult 12 months amongst families being directly effected by cancer within the school.

Sarah said: “My own daughters wanted to join in too to help raise awareness and support others affected by cancer, and soon lots of girls from the primary school and some mums were all joining in.”

The group from have so far donated 23 ponytail plaits to provide hair for the wigs.

Sarah added: “This has been a massive achievement and we are personally very proud of Bianka and our girls for this selfless act.”
