Staff from East Surrey Hospital and local bereavement support charity – The Brigitte Trust, will come together on Saturday, 18 May 2019, for a remembrance service commemorating the lives of people who have died whilst in hospital.
Relatives and friends of those who have recently passed away are invited to attend a special service in the Atrium to remember loved ones through readings, reflections, poems, prayers and music. They are also welcome to lay a flower or pebble in the chapel as a token of remembrance.
Elaine Edwards, Macmillian lead nurse for palliative and end of life care, said: “The service of remembrance can offer a powerful way of honouring those we have lost and can help those who have experienced the loss of a loved one find strength and comfort.
“During the service there will be some quiet time for those who want to reflect on memories that are personal to them. However, we also know that as part of the healing process some people need to talk and some take the opportunity to meet others who understand what it is to lose someone they love.”
Stanley Njoka, head of chaplaincy and spiritual services said: “It is important that people from multi-faith backgrounds can come together to celebrate the memory of people they loved. We welcome everyone to join us.”
The service will take place on Saturday 18 May at 11am, at the Atrium, East Surrey Hospital. There will be refreshments provided (tea, coffee and cake).
