Time to reflect on a difficult year at 2020 Tree of Light

Living Magazines Time to Reflect 2020

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity have joined together with Bucks Healthcare Trust to offer a virtual Time to Reflect service this December to support those who have faced the loss of a loved one this year.

From 5pm on Sunday 6 December until the end of the year, the virtual Time to Reflect service will be available to view on the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity website. The service will have input from both the Hospice and Bucks Healthcare Trust staff who will share their thoughts, experiences and the realities of Covid-19 this year. There will also be readings and music with time to light a candle to take a moment of reflection and remembrance.

‘We recognise Christmas can be a very emotional occasion, a time when we particularly think of loved ones who are no longer with us,’ says Ann Kenny, the Bereavement Support Team Lead at the Hospice. ‘This year has had enormous challenges for everybody, and sadly, many people have faced the loss of a loved one with little outlet to express their feelings properly. Whilst we cannot meet in person as usual at our traditional Tree of Light events, here at Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity we felt it was incredibly important to still offer a safe space and time for reflection.’

The Charity has also set up an online Tree of Light remembrance page where you can dedicate a memory to someone special. To sponsor a dedication or to access the virtual Time to Reflect service go to fnhospice.org.uk/tree-of-light, or call 01296 429975 for more information.
