Easter may be over for another year, but its spirit lives on at Frontline Recruitment after the company teamed up with the Forever Stars charity to donate to their Annual Egg Hunt.
Frontline’s Operations Director David Essam went along to the Forever Stars offices in Beeston, Nottinghamshire to hand over the Easter Egg haul after working with the charity on the recent East Midlands Business Masters Awards, where Frontline was the headline sponsors.
Jo Sharp, operations and corporate fundraising manager at Forever Stars, said: “We’re hugely thankful to Frontline Recruitment for getting the ball rolling with a fantastic donation of eggs for our annual hunt.”
The charity, which is dedicated to supporting families who’ve suffered a stillbirth or infant loss, organises a family fun day and Easter egg hunt every year as part of their fundraising activities.
Previous years have seen funds raised go towards the creation of ‘Serenity Suites’ in both the City Hospital and the Queens Medical Centre which are occupied on average by two families per week supporting them following their loss.
This year, the funds raised will be going towards a new and even bigger target, the creation of the Forever Stars Remembrance Garden. This will be a place where families can relax, remember and reflect on their baby and child loss journey in an environment that is both beautiful to look at and respectful to their needs.
David said: “Forever Stars make real differences to people’s lives and their work is an inspiration to us all at Frontline.
“It was an honour to help with the charity’s Easter Egg Hunt and we wish everyone at Forever Stars all the best with the creation of their new Remembrance Garden.”
The location has already been secured, on Highfields Park, within the University of Nottingham grounds, known by many local families as the former paddling pool area. With the site secured, the race is now on to raise the funds to ensure this five-year project can start to take shape.
