Hospice’s annual service

A special remembrance service is being held on Sunday for those who have died at St Catherine’s Hospice.

Families and loved ones are being invited by the hospice to reflect on the lives of those they miss at its annual remembrance service.

The hospice cares for people from across Whitby and the Esk Valley and all the way down to Driffield and it needs over £6 million a year to provide the care that it does.

Christine Herbert, a spiritual care co-ordinator at the hospice told the Gazette: “We are proud to have been supporting people at the hospice for 30 years and would be happy for any of the families we have helped over three decades to join us for this special service.

“Everyone who is missing someone they love is welcome to join us, whether they have had connections with Saint Catherine’s or not.”

The annual service takes place on Sunday at St Andrew’s United Reformed Church on Ramshill Road in Scarborough from 3pm.

Refreshments will be served following the church service.
