We’re delighted to say we have been awarded £2,000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help Initiative for our ‘Living With’ Memory Box Project.
You voted for us in store at the Tesco Superstore in Brighouse and in Express stores in parts of Huddersfield during March and April.
As a result of your votes and the award from Tesco, we will be able to help achieve one of our three aims – to support children who have had to face the death of a parent at a young age, the tragedy which Nick’s children Hadyn, aged 6, and Georgia, aged 4, are having to live with.
Stephen Naylor, Chair of the Nick Smith Foundation, said:
“Every penny counts for a small charity such as The Nick Smith Foundation and the £2,000 from Tesco Bags of Help will make a real difference. Thank you to everyone who chose to support us.
“Our ‘Living With’ Memory Box Project aims to support children who are having to face the worst possible situation – the death of a parent at a young age. Nothing can ever take away the pain, but we hope our work can support them through some of the darkest days imaginable.”
