Dying Matters Week 8 – 14 May 2017 – What Can You Do?


This year, Dying Matters is asking everybody a simple question –  "What Can You Do?". Talking and planning ahead for dying, death and bereavement is really important. But people also need practical help and support and there are plenty of things we can do to help each other.  

This year we are holding the following events in support of the awareness week, please contact us if you would like further details: Tel No: 01270 752120.
