Marie Currie Day of Reflection 23rd March 2021

Since the first lockdown began in 2020, hundreds of thousands of people, including over 125,000 in the UK, 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.

Marie Curie are inviting everyone to join them on Tuesday 23 March, the first anniversary of the first UK lockdown, for a National Day of Reflection to reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future. This initiative is being supported by the Government and many UK-wide organisations, including the the Church of England.

In Burford, Tom Putt will be specially opening up the Church for an hour from 11.30-12.30. If you would like to go there to reflect you will be most welcome. There will be a brief act of remembrance from 11.50, which will include the minute’s silence.
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.
