Take a moment at 12noon Tuesday

 

#DayOfReflection

Let's come together this Tuesday to reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.

Since the first lockdown began in 2020, hundreds of thousands of people have died. Too many lives have been cut short and millions have been bereaved.

Behind the statistics and whatever the cause, every death has been devastating for the people left behind.

On the 1st anniversary of the first UK lockdown, let's reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.

There are still tough times ahead, as the death toll continues to rise. This annual day will give us all time to pause and think about this unprecedented loss we’re facing, and support each other through grief in the years to come.

Join a minute of silence at 12 noon

Join Marie Curie UK for this moment of reflection, as guests share their thoughts, words and songs. Together, we’ll honour loved ones who have died and reflect on the challenges we have overcome. During this session we’ll pause to observe the national minute of silence at 12 noon.

Shine a light at 8pm

At 8pm we’ll hold a minute’s silence and come together to light up the night. Stand outside with a light – a candle, a torch, even your phone – to remember someone who’s died and show your support to people going through a bereavement.

Alternatively you can shine a light in your window for everyone to see.
