All the proceeds will go to cause founded by Nottingham family.

Nottingham’s tram network is donating a new kiosk at a stop to help fundraise for a local charity.

The kiosk at Toton Lane Park & Ride site will be opened on Monday, October 2 and will serve food and drink during peak hours.

Richard Daniels, co-founder of Forever Stars, said: “We’re very grateful for the support we’ve received from NET which has given our charity a huge boost over the past few months.

“The kiosk will help us to continue to increase the awareness of our cause and also help us to raise valuable funds in order for us to continue our support of bereaved families in the city.”

Founded in 2013, Forever Stars raised over £100,000 to build and equip the ‘Serenity Suite’, which opened at Queen’s Medical Centre last year.

The founders of the charity, Richard and Michelle Daniels, saw their names unveiled on one of the city’s trams in March when NET announced them as the winners of its Community Hero award for 2017.

Following the naming, the charity was able to open a second specialist bereavement suite in Nottingham at the City Hospital.

Chris Williams, NET’s commercial manager, oversees the tram’s community partnerships. He said: “We’re delighted to have been able to further strengthen our links with an important local charity that works tirelessly to help so many grieving parents in the local area.

“We’re sure our customers will appreciate being able to pick up a drink or something to eat before they start, or just after they finish their journey with us, and we hope it helps the charity continue its impressive fundraising.”

The opening of the kiosk has been timed to coincide with National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

Forever Stars will be using the opportunity to promote its #talkaboutthem campaign, whereby the charity is encouraging families to feel more confident and comfortable when it comes to talking about baby loss.
