Remembering 100 years of the end of WW1

November 9, 2018 10:04 am Published by

This year commemorates 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Each year on November 11 we stop at 11am for a short moment of silence and reflection to remember the bravery of all those who lost their lives in the First World War and other wars.

There are many ways that we remember and pay tribute, whether it’s through poems, exhibitions or by wearing a poppy.  Poppies became synonymous as a way to remember soldiers who died in battle, a resilient flower that sprung up and flourished on the war torn battlefields of World War One.

How we choose to remember loved ones, whether it’s soldiers from the past or a recent bereavement of a family member or friend, we all cope with grief and mourn in different ways.

If you’re experiencing loss counselling can help you find a way through, be it in the immediate aftermath of a death, or many years later.  The Counselling Foundation provides specialist bereavement support.

If you would like to talk confidentially to one of our friendly administrators to book an appointment, please contact us.
