We're joining the wave of light to show our support

To help bring comfort to families in the hardest of times, colleagues across our funeral homes will be taking part in a ‘wave of light’ to support Baby Loss Awareness Week.

The campaign is held from Wednesday 9th October to Tuesday 15th October and aims to raise awareness about the key issues affecting those who have experienced pregnancy loss and baby death in the UK.

This year we will be holding memorial services across our funeral homes, lighting a candle and holding a minute silence in memory of loved ones.

We will be joined at our Scunthorpe Funeral Home on Wednesday 9th October by SANDS – the still birth and neonatal death charity. 

We will also have a representative from the bereavement team at Scunthorpe General Hospital at the service. Candles will be lit at the service to begin our wave of light.

We’ll also be joining in with the virtual wave of light on Tuesday 15th October at 7pm on our social media channels.

Lincolnshire Co-op Funeral’s Commercial Support Manager Jess Emmerson said: “We wanted to join in with campaign to show the support and comfort we provide during this difficult time. The wave of light is a powerful way to raise awareness of this campaign.”

“We’re holding our own services and joining the wave of light to show our support and hope that people feel able to speak about their experiences and access any care that they may need.”

For those looking for support, you can get access to our free bereavement counselling service, delivered by our Lincolnshire Centre for Grief and Loss. The team can be contacted at any time on 01522 546 168 or email at email@lcgl.org.uk.

Their centre can deliver one-to-one counselling or alternatively, you may wish to attend its monthly support group, which provides an opportunity to meet and chat with others who have experienced loss in their lives.
