Come and remember, Bradford parents told
11:00am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
Families grieving for children and babies who died in Bradford hospitals in the last 18 months are being invited to a special memorial.
Hospital staff see it as a way of offering comfort and helping overcome grief.
Time for Shared Memories will be on Saturday, October 19, at 3pm in the Joint Committee Room at Field House, Bradford Royal Infirmary. It is for people of all faiths, as well as those who are not religious, and will be based around a children’s story with music and poems.
The memorial is to support not only parents but other family members and friends who are grieving – siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles or close family friends.
One couple who will be there are Joe and Karen McCausland, who will be remembering their baby son Joseph. They have attended the service for the past two years now.
Mrs McCausland said: “Losing a child changes your life forever. Nonetheless, time goes on, and this is a unique opportunity to focus solely on your loved one.”
The service will be based around the children’s story The Star that Fell by Karen Hayles and candles will be lit for the youngsters who died.
Invitations will be sent to families but anyone who thinks they would benefit from the occasion is also welcome.
To find out more call Denise Stewart on (01274) 366925 or Julie Key on (01274) 364911.
