Official Charity named for 2024/25

Forever Finley

Forever Finley designated as official charity

Tonbridge Angels delighted to announce that our official charity for the 2024/25 season will be Forever Finley.

The charity was set up by Charlotte and Rob Smith in memory of their son Finley, who died at 41 weeks gestation during labour due to NHS negligence.

The charity provides 3D hand and feet castings to bereaved parents in and around Essex, Suffolk and Kent. They cast angel babies from 23 weeks gestation onwards and can help make the most precious memories for families.

The Forever Finley football team has been playing on Friday evenings at the Halcyon Wealth Longmead Stadium since September 2022. The team is made up of other bereaved fathers, who have also lost babies during pregnancy or in childbirth and they play against other charity teams.

Tonbridge Angels will be hosting “Harpers Day” on behalf of the charity on 25th August 2024, this is a tournament for several other charity football teams in the area.

You can find out more about Forever Finley and the work they do to support bereaved parents at their website www.foreverfinley.co.uk.

The club will also continue to support the Motor Neurone Disease Association through sales of the club’s new third shirt, where £10 of the purchase price will be donated to the charity.
