Suffolk Remembers on Suffolk Day

St Elizabeth Hospice has joined local organisations to mark the first ever Suffolk Day on Wednesday 21 June, offering local people the chance to remember a loved one at their ‘Suffolk Remembers’ event.

The remembrance celebration will take place at Felixstowe from 9pm where supporters are invited to light a candle and place it at the seafront gardens, or hold it, in memory of their loved one. 

Pauline Donkin, individual support manager at St Elizabeth Hospice said: “Whilst Suffolk Day is an opportunity to celebrate Suffolk’s history and culture, it is also a good time to reflect on the people we have lost who are a part of our life story, whether they are from the region or not.

“Our remembrance event will give supporters a chance to honour and celebrate those that are no longer with us, by dedicating a candle in their memory on the first ever Suffolk Day, creating a beautiful display of lights across Felixstowe seafront.”

St Elizabeth Hospice will be handing out candles to those that would like to take part in the event at 9pm with Felixstowe Mayor Nick Barber leading a minutes silence, and Felixstowe Community Choir will be performing at 9.15pm. 

The event is open to anyone, not just those who been affected by hospice care, and is free to attend, however there will be donation pots at the event if you would like to make a contribution.
