A ten year old girl from Harrogate who was tragically left quadriplegic after falling off a climbing frame a year ago – has been presented with a sparkling diamond donated by Stoners of Harrogate.
Stoners will help Bel to design her own bracelet using this diamond which has been specially named ‘Bel’s Bracelet’. Brave Bel has asked Christopher Stoner, owner of Stoners of Harrogate, to design a bracelet incorporating the letter “B” encrusted with the dazzling diamond.
The jeweller donated the £2,000 diamond for a fundraising ball raffle to raise money for special equipment, therapy and care for Bel.
Raffle winner and West Yorkshire resident Nigel Jowett was so touched by Bel’s story that he donated the precious diamond to Bel and was thrilled to present it to her in person.

Christopher Stoner said:
It’s fantastic that Nigel has given the diamond to Bel. The diamond is named ‘Bel’s diamond’ so it’s fitting that she is now its proud owner. Bel is an inspirational young girl who is extremely courageous and it’s tremendous that we have been able to help boost her quality of life in this fundraising venture.
This is the latest charity project for the diamond specialist whose commitment to putting something back into its local communities includes raising over £5,000 for the PPR Foundation, Brain Tumour Research Appeal and an ongoing fundraising campaign for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
