Sherborne Snowdrop Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving

Marie Curie, Weldmar Hospicecare, the Yeatman Hospital and Cruse will join together again in 2020 for the Snowdrop Service. This is a marvellous example of organisations working together to support those who have been bereaved at any time. The snowdrop is a symbol of hope after a long cold winter and many people who attend gain comfort from knowing that others are going through a similar journey.

Members of staff from each organisation will take part in the service which will be followed by refreshments. The Snowdrop Service, is hosted by Sherborne Churches Together and will be held on Friday 7 February at 11.30 at Cheap Street Church, Sherborne DT9 3BJ.  All are welcome.
