The Mark Master Mason of Warwickshire made a generous contribution of £100,000 towards the construction of a new centre for families who have experienced baby loss. Woodland House, situated adjacent to Birmingham Women’s Hospital, cost £3 million to build and was unveiled by bereaved families on Thursday.
The funds were raised through a charity appeal, showcasing the strength and compassion of the local community. The centre is designed as a safe and supportive environment where families can grieve away from the hustle and bustle of the maternity ward.
Lynette Parkes was involved in the Woodland House project from the start, having lost her baby James at the hospital eight years ago.
“It was an incredibly traumatic experience,” she recalls. ” I hope Woodland House will provide comfort and solace to other families going through the same experience.
