People in the Felixstowe area are being invited to join a coffee morning to talk freely and positively about how to plan for dying, death and bereavement.

The event is being staged on Saturday, May 13, from 10am to noon by David Button Independent Funeral Directors as part of Dying Matters Awareness Week.

Mr Button said: “Every minute someone in the UK dies, but many of us still do not feel comfortable talking about dying. Talking more openly and confidently about dying can help people make the most of life and to support loved ones at their time of need, ensuring that their wishes have been met.

“Dying Matters Awareness Week is the perfect opportunity to talk about dying, death and bereavement and I sincerely hope that our event helps breaks down some of the perceived barriers.”

The event takes place at the funeral directors in the Old Lloyds Bank, High Street, Walton, Felixstowe. Coffee and cake is being provided by Gemma’s Crafty Cakes.
