Memory Jars – a word from our Counselling, Bereavement and Spiritual Care Lead
By Aimée Overington
Losing someone you love is difficult beyond words, but we will never forget our treasured memories and moments that we shared with them.
I am fairly new to this role however I have already experienced what a loving, supportive and caring charity
Weldmar is. At some point in our lives, we all experience loss and finding coping mechanisms that work for you is different for everyone.
Just because someone has died, it doesn’t mean that we forget them and the memories that we shared together. Our brand new Memory Jar installation offers you the unique opportunity to relieve and capture those memories, which will shine bright across our three displays this summer.
There is no other installation across Dorset that provides this opportunity, for your memories to come together with others who have been, or currently are, experiencing bereavement.
Light often plays a key part for many people in their bereavement journey, whether it is physically lighting a candle or finding hope and light through challenging and emotional times. This year, you can ensure that your memories shine bright from sunset to sunrise each night throughout our displays.
Plus, by being part of our Memory Jar installation, you will help fund the continuation of support that is provided by our compassionate and caring counsellors to hundreds of people experiencing bereavement right now.
So, I warmly invite you to be part of this remembrance event, to help Weldmar Hospicecare and to ensure that the memories of your loved ones live on.
