Press Release

Leicestershire Service of Remembrance
Press release date29/11/2017
The death of a baby or another loved one is difficult to bear at any time of the year. Yet at Christmas, with so much emphasis on families sharing happy times together, those feelings of grief can often seem even more overwhelming.
Press release

We invite you and your families and friends to come and join us and the Leicester Philharmonic Choir for a special service to remember all our babies and children who are no longer with us.

During the service, we will read out the names of all the babies and children we are remembering. Families will also have an opportunity to light a candle in their memory and place a message on the Remembrance Tree.

Although the service is being held in a Church, we hope it will be acceptable to families of all faiths and those who have no religious affiliation. The emphasis throughout is to come together to remember our children who have died.

If you are able to join us and would like us to read out a name or names, please let us know as soon as possible. You can email us at info@leicester-sands.org.uk or text/phone us on 07721 068464. We can read out names and light a candle for you, even if you are unable to join us - just let us know.

St Andrew's Church, Jarrom Street, Leicester, LE2 7DH

Saturday 9th December 2017 at 2pm
