Remembering Day 12th March 2022

On Saturday 12th March we hosted a Remembering Day for all the families we have been in contact with who have lost a loved one or were already grieving at the start of the pandemic in 2020.  Many families had missed out on the chance to gather with others to remember their special person or to mark their anniversary due to restrictions.  We took time to remember people’s loved ones through crafts and memory activities and a collective time of quiet, gathered around the beautiful stones everyone had painted.  We also had plenty of food and fun times together including drumming and making slime.  Thank you so much to all the families that came and shared with us, to our great team of volunteers and staff and to the Sir John Middlemore Trust for funding our time together.
