Hospitals hold Baby and
Child Christmas Remembrance Service
2 Hospitals will be offering support
again to families remembering lost loved ones in the weeks before Christmas.
The Baby and Child Remembrance Service, will be held at Ormskirk Hospital and led
by the Trust chaplain, the Rev Martin Abrams.
"The run up to Christmas can be a very exciting and special time, but it
can also heighten a sense of loss, grief and isolation. This was a much appreciated and successful event last year. We hope the
short, informal service will be supportive to anyone who has suffered a child or
baby loss; not just recently, but at any time in the past.
The Salvation Army band will join us and we will be writing the names of loved
ones on baubles to hang from our Christmas tree." said Martin.
The event will start with refreshments in the main Ormskirk Hospital entrance, at
6.30pm, on Wednesday, 7 December 2016, before moving to one of the Hospital Gardens
for the service.
Windy Arbour Farm, at Billinge is providing a Christmas
Tree for the occasion.
Trees of Remembrance will also be available in the prayer and quiet rooms at
both Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals during December.
Visitors will be welcome to write the name or names of loved ones on a
decoration and hang it from the tree.
