Nottinghamshire timber merchants’ golf day raises £1,000 for charity

A Nottinghamshire timber merchants has raised over £1,000 for a local charity as they mark 50 years of business in Radcliffe-On-Trent.

Bassingfield Woodyard held the event for clients and customers at Calverton’s Springwater Golf Club where they announced Forever Stars as their charity partner for the year to celebrate their own milestone.

Managing Director Nicola Allison said: “This is a big year for the business. There’s been a woodyard around this site in various guises for over half a century, supplying and delivering a wide range of timber building products to trade and private DIY customers. We’re proud to be part of that story and proud to be working with such a great cause as Forever Stars in this crucial year for them with their Remembrance Garden project.

“I hope that the funds we raised on the golf day, which was so brilliantly run by our team member Chloe Spray, help with the fundraising element of the project and we’re already in talks with Forever Stars about how we might be able to help out with materials too as they do such incredible work for such a great cause so we’re very keen to lend our support.”

Founded by Nottingham parents Richard and Michelle Daniels, Forever Stars is an East Midlands charity dedicated to supporting families who’ve suffered a stillbirth or infant loss, helping to support bereaved families across the region.

In 2013, Richard & Michelle were dealt one of life’s hardest blows when their beautiful daughter Emily was stillborn. They went on to found Forever Stars in Emily’s memory. Together they now work tirelessly to raise the necessary funds to build facilities and to improve care for parents who also find their precious child has gone too soon.

Their major focus in 2019 is the funding and creation of a Remembrance Garden on Highfields Park to help bereaved parents of stillborn babies and early baby loss by creating a place of “focus, relaxation and reflection for families.”
