Ashley Lodge Spring into the New Year

On New Year's Eve Peter Boyd, the Immediate Past Master of The Ashley Lodge presented a cheque for £2,950 to Janine Golding of the Poole Hospital based charity Spring, Ashley's nominated charity for Peter's year as Master.

A large proportion of the monies raised were donated under the Gift Aid scheme increasing the the benefit to Spring by more than £500, giving total in excess of £3,450.

Spring is a charity supporting parents and relatives through baby loss. Everything they do is to benefit bereaved parents and relatives who experience the loss of a baby. They offer support for baby loss that occurs at any stage of pregnancy, at, or just after birth – whatever the circumstances and however long ago.
Their services include: emotional and practical support at the point of loss; professional counselling; open support meetings for parents and relatives; and ways to remember their babies. They are also there to support bereaved parents through subsequent pregnancies.

They work closely with medical professionals, and others who come into contact with parents and relatives whose babies die. By sharing their experience, they help ensure bereaved parents are treated sensitively and with genuine care.

The Ashley Lodge is proud to assist Spring, helping to support bereaved families at their lowest ebb
