KHIST charity presentation


Supporters attending Saturday’s friendly match against Birmingham City, will have seen the half-time presentation of a final donation to our chosen charity, ‘Towards Tomorrow Together’. This was to mark the closure of the KHIST Telford Walk collection, which has raised the fantastic sum of £18 208.34 for this most compassionate of local charities’ (including a £1000 charitable grant from the Football Association, donated by Kidderminster Harriers )

Harriers’ fans; will recall the event on Good Friday, when over 50 hardy souls braved the 35 miles from Aggborough to the New Bucks Head, in very difficult walking conditions to raise funds in memory of little Charlotte May Pountney. They may also remember the exceptional support for Easter Monday’s bucket/blanket collection of both Harriers and Bristol Rovers fans. The generosity of the public has been incredible and has enabled ‘Towards Tomorrow Together’ to extend its wonderful support for parents and families in the depths of despair.

Quite fittingly, the cheque was presented by Dave Pountney to Lisa Clarke of ‘TTT’ who, together with husband Phil and son George (a new Harriers’ fan) attended the match as guests of the Trust. They thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and have been overwhelmed by the generosity of so many people.

The KHIST board wishes to extend our own thanks to everyone who has supported this enormous effort over such a long period of time.

About the Charity:TTT motif PNG

‘Towards Tomorrow Together’ is a local charity, operating from bases in Kidderminster, Taunton and Bridgwater. This is a small, but dedicated organisation, providing invaluable support to parents who have suffered stress, pain and devastation, after losing their babies during or shortly after pregnancy.

‘Towards Tomorrow Together’ serves hospitals in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and West Midlands (and separately in Somerset) initially providing keepsake boxes, and offering monthly group support meetings and play days for siblings. Due to some fantastic fundraising in the Worcestershire area, the charity can now also fund alternative therapies to families from practitioners who have received training on the specific difficulties bereaved parents and their families may face. In the near future, the charity is also planning to fund short breaks away as another choice.
