North West Forever Day

2nd February 2018

We’re inviting families from across the North West of England who have lost a loved one to meningitis to one of our Forever Days

Forever Day

The special event will take place at the Worsley Marriott Hotel in Manchester on Sunday 25 March.

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

Christine Hughes, our Community Support Officer in the region, 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.”

Remember loved ones

During the day, which begins at 10.30am, families will remember loved ones through a structured and creative programme of commemorative activities led by trained and experienced bereavement practitioners and have the opportunity to share experiences.

The day will draw to a close at 4pm 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,” Christine added.

Places are limited

Places are limited for this event and the closing date for registration is Monday 12 March or earlier if places are filled.

Further Forever Day events are planned for later in the year across the country.
