Cornwall lights up orange in support of the bereaved

Landmarks across Cornwall will light up orange to mark Grief Awareness Week which takes place from 2-8 December.

St Petrocs Church in Bodmin will be first in the week to light up orange on Monday 6 December at 6pm, with Heartlands, Kimberley Park, and Carn Brea concluding on 8 December at 6pm.
The week will close with a special event at Heartlands Good Grief Café on Wednesday 8th December between 4pm and 7pm, with a minute’s silence at 6pm.

The event is hosted by The Good Grief Trust and is supported by many other bereavement organisations across Cornwall, including Cornwall Bereavement Network, Widowed and Young, and Penhaligon’s Friends.

Charmaine George, Cornwall’s representative for The Good Grief Trust says; “We offer help and hope to those grieving and reconnect communities who may feel isolated and alone in their grief. 2021 has seen far too many families affected by grief across the county and this event aims to unite people in their grief and signpost them to organisations that may be able to offer bereavement support.”

Good Grief Pop Up Cafés run monthly. Contact charmaine@thegoodgrieftrust.org for more information.
