We launched our Forever in Bloom appeal in January 2018.
Alongside Lilian Greenwood MP and a number of our corporate supporters, we were delighted to announce the launch of the Forever In Bloom Appeal to help fund the Forever Stars Remembrance Garden at Highfields Park in Nottingham.
Very often the focus of bereavement support is geared to the parents but we are very aware that often the brothers and sisters of a baby that is stillborn or lost at the neonatal stage can be very traumatic and can affect siblings in many ways.
The Forever Stars Remembrance Garden will be a place where families can relax, remember and reflect on their baby & child loss journey in an environment that is both beautiful to look at and respectful to their needs.
Coming Soon... Forever Stars Remembrance Garden at Highfields Park in Nottingham
This park will be for baby loss bereaved parents and for parents who have lost older children. This is a five-year project that will cost £1m, so we really do need your help to raise awareness and funds for us to achieve our most ambitious project to date.
Following the Serenity Suites and Counselling Services, we now want to help families with their ongoing support and we believe after talking to many families that providing a focal point in the City for families will be both a unique and important addition to their bereavement journey. We now have a JustGiving page set up for the Forever In Bloom Appeal, so please if you fancy supporting us by either donating or set up a fundraising page please click the link
We need to raise over £1 million in 5 years... can you help? Our remembrance garden will...
Be a place for families to go after their time in hospital
Sometimes visiting a baby's or child's grave is either too hard or indeed difficult due to family circumstances, so we want to provide a garden where they are free to visit whenever and however they want.
Enable families to mark their child's name on a leaf within a tree of tranquillity
For many families who suffered baby loss many years ago, this could be their only tribute to their lost baby.
Be filled with wildflowers, a water feature, seating & picnic areas
So, anyone who walks around it will both feel welcome and be able to take in the stunning landscape architecture.
