THE VALE Crematorium will open the doors of its chapel on Mother’s Day for a specially-recorded Service of Remembrance.
It will be open next Sunday (March 27) from 10.30am to 12.30pm for families to gather with the service being shown at 11am.
The service is expected to last around 45 minutes and will include readings, music and poems and will also be available on the Westerleigh Group’s YouTube channel.
Site manager Catherine Linfield highlighted the poignancy of the day for those who have lost their mum or cannot be together on the day.
“Due to the exceptional circumstances families have endured as result of the pandemic, and lockdown restrictions, we wanted to open up our chapel on Mother’s Day, in order to give families an opportunity to gather and remember their mum or mother figure while visiting our beautiful site,” she said.
The service will be provided in aid of Huntington’s Disease Association as Westerleigh Group’s corporate charity of the year.
They provide care and support services for people with Huntington’s disease living in England and Wales, educate families and professionals and champion people’s rights.
