Tilemaster helps Jackie Nash complete Finlay’s Garden

August 2017

Tilemaster Adhesives has supported mosaic artist, Jackie Nash in the completion of a remembrance garden for Finlay Church.  Officially opened by his parents, Finlay’s Garden is located at Alvechurch Middle School in Worcestershire, where Finlay was a pupil.  

Before losing a year-long battle with a brain tumour, 10-year old Finlay raised £100,000 to help others, broke the world record for the longest line of teddy bears - 15,534 in total – and received numerous accolades, including The Pride of Birmingham Award.

Finlay’s Garden is approached down a pathway containing 26 stepping stones, designed and produced with help from Finlay’s school friends. Each stepping stone represents images that reflect Finlay’s life and they lead to a central mosaic designed by Nash, with outer sections designed by Finlay’s family. Head Teacher, David Snell, supported the garden’s creation and all adhesives, grouts and primers used to fix the intricate ceramic mosaics were donated by Tilemaster Adhesives.  

Finlay’s charity has now raised over £150,000 for Brain Tumour research and the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.  The garden will provide a lasting legacy to Finlay and will also highlight brain tumour research – which currently receives less than 1% of national funding, despite being the biggest and most serious cancer threat for UK children.
