The first National Grief Awareness Week week was held between 2nd December to 8th December.  It was held is to raise awareness of all aspects of grief and loss on a national scale. To help the public to better understand how to support those grieving the loss of someone they love and to open conversations and normalise grief.   

 On Saturday 7th December visitors to the Crematorium, Funeral Directors and Arrangers, celebrants, staff and Noodles the crematorium dog completed a 5k before.  For many this was their first Park Run https://www.parkrun.org.uk/richmond/  They ran remembering someone they love; a child, mother, father, Grandad, grandmother, uncle, aunt, sister, brother, friend, colleague . #openuptogrief #strongertogether

Thank you to all those that took part.  £1,196 was raised for the Good Grief Trust.

We will be making this an annual event so keep Saturday 5th December 2020 in your diary.
