The Lord Mayor has chosen to support one charity during his term of office.

Forever Stars

The Lord Mayor has chosen to support Forever Stars.

Forever Stars was established in May 2014 following the stillbirth of Emily Daniels on December 19th 2013. Emily’s parents Michelle and Richard Daniels, felt that whilst the care they received from the NHS healthcare professionals was excellent, the facilities and ongoing resources to support bereaved families needed additional funding and focused support in order to help families come to terms with their loss in a healthy environment that both enables the family to move forward and embrace the memory of their baby.

I have chosen Forever Stars as my Lord Mayor’s Charity for the civic year 2021/2022. It is a local Nottingham charity set up in 2014. Despite being a young charity, it is very active in working with and delivering services for parents tragically suffering from baby loss.

It is a charity that is passionate, gets things done and delivers. They have created 2 completely new Serenity Suites at the Queens Medical Centre and the City Hospital, where none existed before.

They have also created a completely beautiful new “Serenity Garden“ in the Green Flag winning Highfields Park. Featuring 2 fabulous new Sculptures of a star and acorn created by the very talented Rachel Carter. It is a fabulous space for all to enjoy its tranquility. 

It is a space where parents that suffer baby loss can escape too, gather their thoughts and remember their children in quiet contemplation away from the maddening crowd. 

Most importantly of all, Forever Stars is a charity that makes a real difference to people’s lives at a time when their lives are devastated through baby loss when that support is most needed.

Please give generously.

Councillor David Trimble,

Lord Mayor of Nottingham.
