Farleigh Hospice is launching its Forget-Me-Not Appeal for 2020, culminating in the hospice’s first-ever online remembrance service, on Saturday the 18th of July at 2 pm.
The Forget-Me-Not appeal is a powerful and positive way to remember the life of someone special. As part of the appeal, Farleigh has launched an online Forget-Me-Not memory page, where people can remember their loved ones by sharing their stories, pictures, and thoughts. To share a memory or to make a donation visit farleighhosice.memorypage.org/forgetmenot. The appeal concludes with the hospice’s Forget-Me-Not service, which for the first time will be held online via Facebook and YouTube, on Saturday 18th July at 2 pm. The service is open to anyone who would like to remember someone special in their life and will include readings and performances, along with a photo gallery of loved ones. To have a photo included in the service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 10th July.

Alison Stevens, Chief Executive of Farleigh Hospice said “Our annual Forget-Me-Not service is an important part of our calendar and offers families and friends the opportunity to remember someone special in their life. Due to social distancing, we have moved the service online, and through our readings, songs, and our remembrance photo gallery, we hope to offer people the chance to come together, remember, and offer each other comfort and support.
This appeal is very important to us, it helps us raise awareness of the emotional and physical impact of loss and grief, and every donation helps our bereavement team to continue to provide emotional and practical support to young people and adults across mid-Essex.
Through this simple way of remembering someone special, you can help Farleigh continue providing care and support to those affected by life-limiting illness and bereavement, as well as supporting the NHS through the COVID-19 pandemic.
