Ty Cymorth Day Hospice, Carmarthen led by the Chaplaincy Department of Hywel Dda University Health Board, is holding their annual 'Their Light Still Shines' remembrance service on November 22 at 2.30pm, providing a place of light and hope for those who are mourning.
The service will be held at the National Botanic Garden of Wales, Llanarthne, in the peaceful glass dome. Entry is free via the main entrance and is open to all ages and all faiths and none. Balloons are released at the end of the Celebration.
Euryl Howells, Senior Chaplain for Hywel Dda University Health Board said: “We are delighted that Carmarthen Tenor, Radio Wales presenter and patron of Ty Cymorth, Wynne Evans will be joining the service along with local musicians.
“12 central candles will also be lit, representing members of the family, work colleagues, those who have donated their organs to offer to others life. We will also remember those who have died in the armed forces and police and fire services across the years, with the final candle lit for those who await news of loved ones who remain missing.
“In celebrating and remembering, you will be supporting the work of Ty Cymorth Hospice however you do not have to have used the services of the hospice, you can remember anyone who was special to you, who lit up your life, or was an inspiration.
“I would like to thank the management of the National Botanic Garden of Wales for hosting this event; the Great Glass House offers a safe space for everyone of faith or no-faith to come together to share the pain of grief”
A memorial book for you to record a personal message will be placed in the Carmarthen Journal office until November 20.
A free bus has been arranged from Carmarthen Bus Station at 1.30pm on the day.
