Families invited to Solihull hospice for Lights To Remember service

Solihull Editorial 16th Nov, 2022   0

FAMILIES who have lost loved ones are being invited to the Marie Curie hospice for the first Lights to Remember Service since coronavirus restrictions were lifted.

This event, on December 4, is for those who have been affected by terminal illness or bereavement the chance to come together at the hospice, joined by staff and supporters.

From 4pm there will include readings, music, and the time and space to reflect on the cherished memories of loved ones who have died.

On the day, guests will receive a paper memory lantern which can be personalised with a loved one’s name, a message, or a drawing to honour their life.

Jane Murray, bereavement services manager at the hospice said: “Everyone at Marie Curie is really looking forward to welcoming people back to the hospice in person.

“It can be an emotional event, but also a really nice moment for families to take time to remember loved ones who have died. It also gives staff from the Solihull hospice and Marie Curie Nurses across the West Midlands time to remember the people they have cared for.”

For anyone unable to attend on the day, or who would prefer to join online there will be a virtual service available on December 18.

The services are free to attend and anyone wishing to attend should register by November 26 online at https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/get-involved/lights-to-remember/register.

If anyone is missing someone special this Christmas and would like to talk to anyone, they can call the Marie Curie support line for free on 0800 090 2309 or online at mariecurie.org.uk/christmas-support-line.
