Celebration of Life
On Saturday 7 December we held
our fifth annual Celebration of Life event at
St Marylebone Parish Church in London.
This service was a chance to join with our supporters in
remembering and celebrating the lives of those that have been
lost. With an introduction from our Chief Executive, Simon
Gillespie, we sang and listened to carols from the wonderful St
Marylebone Parish Choir. There were moving speeches by Sharon
Gosal, a Gift of Hope fund holder, and Dr Amer
Rana, a Lecturer in Regenerative Medicine, as well
as a touching candle lighting moment.
