Dying Matters Awareness Week

Home » News » Dying Matters Awareness Week

Many of us find it difficult to talk about death and dying, but as the founder of the hospice movement said, "the way we die remains in the memory of those who live on".

Hospice UK organises an annual awareness week to make these important issues easier to explore with our nearest and dearest and Stokesley Methodist Church is hosting an exhibition to support all those affected.

From Monday 13th to Saturday 18th May we are holding a drop- in exhibition full of resources to help think through issues surrounding end of life, with practical help on planning for the future.

The exhibition is open 11am to 2pm every day and includes many local organisations, including Teesside Hospice, Herriot Hospice at Home, Macmillan cancer care, Santander bank, Co-Op funeral care and Michael and Barbara Rea funeral directors. As well as informative literature to take away, several specialists from these organisations will be here in person to give individual help and advice. Admission is free and refreshments are provided.

Please spread the word to let people know; with such good local support, nobody needs to go through this difficult time alone.
