Candle Lighting - Sunday 13th December

Posted 3/1/2016

We were joined by bereaved parents and their families to light candles in memory of our lost children

 The Compassionate Friends 19th Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting was held across the globe on Sunday 13th December at 7 pm local time – uniting family and friends around the globe in lighting candles to honour the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left too soon.  Hundreds of thousands of people commemorated the memory of precious children by the creation of a 24-hour wave of light as it moved from time zone to time zone.


Our event was kindly sponsored by the Plant family in memory of Jack.
