IN remembrance of loved ones passed, GV Hospice Care has organised a special event for the community to come together in a moment of reflection and thoughtful support.

The Community Candlelight Remembrance Event is open to everyone and will take place at the Victoria Lake foreshore, behind the Shepparton Art Museum on Wednesday, May 24 from 5pm until 6.30pm.

Attendees will be invited to light a candle and write a message in memory of those they wish to honour.

Given the difficulties of the past few years, particularly for those who have lost loved ones and been unable to hold traditional funerals due to the pandemic, this event provides a space for people to come together and grieve collectively and pay tribute to their loved ones amongst the beautiful surrounds, under the majestic river red gums.

Well known community member, Ian Bull OAM will MC the evening, with families, groups and individuals welcome to bring picnic blankets if they wish.

Executive manager of GV Hospice, Wendy Ross said, “We hope to have many people come and spend time with other members of the community to remember and celebrate their loved ones

“This is an event for the whole community, not just those who have been connected with GV Hospice. The memorial will be flexible. Some people may wish to come for a short time, light a candle and leave, others may wish to stay for an hour, listen to background music, enjoy the barbecue and feel supported by the wider community.”

Battery-operated candles will be provided for a gold coin donation, and if the weather is inclement, the event will be directed to the McIntosh Centre.
