New Bereavement Drop-in Café at Berwick venue

HospiceCare North Northumberland is giving people in Berwick the opportunity to meet and connect with others who have had similar experiences in losing a loved one.

It is starting its new Bereavement Drop-in Café on Tuesday, July 19 from 10am to 11.30am at the Hazel Marsden House well-being centre on Violet Terrace.

The café will then run on the third Tuesday of every month to provide a safe place to speak openly to others about shared experiences, whilst enjoying tea and cake in a relaxed and informal environment.

People can just drop-in, but they are also welcome to call the centre on 01289 309997 to get more information ahead of attending.

It does not matter if you have not had any previous contact with the hospice, everyone is welcome to attend whether the bereavement is recent or a while ago.

There will also be an opportunity to speak confidentially with Maxine Shell, HospiceCare's family bereavement support co-ordinator.
