Dying Matters 2017

In 2017 the Specialist Palliative Care Team, The Dove Service,  Hopkinson Wooton and Lovatt along with volunteers from Purple Rainbow held some activities in Hanley town centre and at the Royal Stoke Hospital asking people to write on the Before I Die Board the things they would like to do before they die. Lots of conversations took place about dying, death, grief and bereavement and lots of Dying Matters ” What can you do” leaflets were handed out.

In May 2016 a group of volunteers along with Hopkinson Wooton and Lovatt funeral directors were in Hanley Town Centre to talk to people about what they would like to do Before They Die. On a bright sunny day they were joined by actor Peters Duncan ex Blue Peter presenter who shared his experiences of death and dying, comparing the process to birth.
