This national awareness week, coordinated by Hospice UK, gives us an unparalleled opportunity to promote the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement as a natural part of everybody’s life cycle.
Our local programme includes: films, a play, discussions, information workshops on how to plan your future care and a ‘Before I Die…’ wall at Brixton Ritzy to share your bucket list dreams. All the
events are free – although some require pre-booking.
