Grief sup­port on Mother’s Day

Central Leader - - Front Page -

Peo­ple whose moth­ers have passed away can re­mem­ber them at a morn­ing tea.

Mercy Hospice Auck­land in Pon­sonby is hold­ing the event on Mother’s Day to hon­our and re­mem­ber moth­ers who have died.

Jayne Hug­gard, who works in the staff and fam­ily sup­port team at the hospice, says that for many be­reaved peo­ple, Mother’s Day and other an­niver­saries are dif­fi­cult days to get through.

Those com­ing are en­cour­aged to bring a photo of their mother which will be dis­played on a ta­ble.

There will also be mu­sic, sto­ries and po­etry read­ings.

Eco-friendly pink bal­loons will be re­leased as a rit­ual of re­mem­brance.

The af­ter­noon tea will be­gin at 3pm and will be held in the lounge at the hospice at 61 Col­lege Hill, Pon­sonby.
