Press release
The event, taking place at 3pm at Leicester Cathedral, will be open to the public as well as staff and volunteers.  Chairman, Karamjit Singh CBE will open the celebration and welcome guests.

 

We will share inspirational patient stories and members of staff will share their most memorable experiences of working in Leicester’s Hospitals. There will be uplifting music, contributions from a staff choir, as well as an opportunity to light a candle for those we love, care for or have lost. 

 

Karamjit Singh CBE said: “The purpose of this event is to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our staff and volunteers, who deliver ‘Caring at its Best’ each and every day. We have a lot of work to do over the coming years, but I’m proud of what we have achieved so far. 

 

“There are many people of faith from different backgrounds who live in our community. I am particularly pleased that we will be having readings which reflect this diversity and that underline the common outlook which we all have.”

 

Mark Burleigh, Head of Chaplaincy and Bereavement Services for Leicester’s Hospitals, adds: “We look forward to welcoming people to our celebration event so we can share experiences and think of those who are in the hospital or who have recently died.”

 

Refreshments will be available after the event, when members of the Chaplaincy team will be on hand to answer any questions and provide support.
