Farleigh Hospice is holding its annual Forget-me-not remembrance service on Saturday 9th July.

Farleigh team with the heart of Forget-me-not messages – Diane Meah, Hannah Tomsett, Lois Matthams, Pauline Harvey-Jones, Sabrina Rees-Evans, Michelle Martin & Claire Smith.

Farleigh has been providing hospice care to people affected by life-limiting illnesses and bereavement across mid-Essex for forty years. The remembrance service is the culmination of the charity’s summer fundraising appeal and a celebration of this birthday milestone.

Mark Cobbin, Head of Bereavement at Farleigh Hospice, explained, “Our Forget-me-not appeal and remembrance service are thoughtful ways to celebrate the life of someone special and to support Farleigh. As this is our 40th
birthday year, we are especially grateful to everyone who has responded and we are sending a Forget-me-not pin badge as a special thank you for every donation.

“We are also asking people to send us their thoughts and memories of the loved ones that they have lost. These precious messages will be displayed on a beautiful heart in the hospice sanctuary until the end of the year. They will also be the centrepiece of our special Forget-me-not service, which is being held in the grounds of Farleigh on Saturday 9th July at 2 pm. Everyone is welcome, so please register for your free tickets and join us.”

The short service is at Farleigh Hospice in Chelmsford and is open to anyone who would like to remember the life of a loved one. It will include a number of readings, performances from the Farleigh Hospice choir and live music, as well as a special children’s session run by the charity’s Yo-Yo team which provides bereavement support for children and young people. Refreshments will be available afterwards.
