Charity funds new bench for grieving families

by | 16 May 2018 | Local Charity, Worksop

The Friends of Langold Country Park have presented Worksop charity Joel The Complete Package with a cheque for £318.48 towards the cost of a replacement Joel bench seat and table at the park. Sadly the previous one was destroyed by fire in May 2017, but a new one has been installed on the Bandstand Field in Langold Country Park again, following this donation and money from Joel. Joel supports families through pregnancy and parenting after loss. The bench is used to help families reflect in a peaceful location, about their loss and celebrate the family.

The money donated by the Friends was collected via a donation fund set up in the village. A collection bucket was put on the bar of the Royal Legion for donations and a slow trickle of small donations added up.
