Join us for our Forever Day

22nd October 2017

We’re inviting families from across the South West and West Midlands who have lost a loved one to meningitis to our Forever Day in December

Forever Day

The special event will take place at Stroud Museum in the Park, the site of our Remembrance Rose Garden, on Thursday 14 December.

It is free to attend and lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Cheryl Brown, our Head of Support, said: “Our experience tells us that people find it comforting and reassuring to talk with others who have been through something similar."

“This is especially true of bereavement, where many people affected feel their pain and trauma are not understood.”

Share experiences

During the day, which begins at 10.30am, families will remember loved ones through a structured, yet creative programme of commemorative activities and have the opportunity to share experiences through a facilitated session with a dedicated bereavement practitioner.

The day will draw to a close at 4.00pm following a gathering to remember loved ones and celebrate their lives.

“Through our Forever Day we offer families the opportunity to meet and gain peer support from others who truly do have an understanding and a shared experience, helping to reduce the feeling of isolation felt by many,” Cheryl added.
