On 23 March 2021 it’ll be one year since the first UK lockdown. Since then, millions of people have been bereaved, both as a result of covid-19 and due to other causes.
The restrictions we’ve all been living under have meant that many people have had to grieve without the comfort of having friends and family around them.
The National Day of Reflection will give us a time to unite and reflect on this tragic loss of life and our collective grief as a nation.
Join the minute of silence at 12 noon
Join Marie Curie for this moment of reflection and pause to observe the national minute of silence at 12 noon.
Shine a light at 8pm
At 8pm Marie Curie will also hold a minute’s silence and come together to light up the night. Stand outside with a light – a candle, a torch, even your phone – to remember someone who’s died and show your support to people going through a bereavement.
Alternatively you can shine a light in your window for everyone to see.
Share what you do on social media using #DayOfReflection.
