Tuesday 10th September will see members of the public uniting at Starts Wellbeing Centre, before the Vigil & Procession of Remembrance commences remembering those we have lost to suicide and in support of those left behind.
126 yellow flags, each representing a life lost to suicide in Salford over the last five years will be unfurled along the procession route to Salford Museum & Art Gallery. Once at the Museum & Art Gallery a vigil of speakers and performances will respectfully honour the lives of those lost to suicide and validate the grief of those that survive within this community display of unity and support.
Maria Roberts will be speaking at The Vigil & Procession of Remembrance which will feature performances from Hacienda Classical Principle Vocalist, Yvonne Shelton, and Musician, James Holt. Also taking part are Nav Kapur, Head of Research at the Centre for Suicide Prevention at the University of Manchester, Jon Rouse, Chief Executive of Greater Manchester Health & Social Care along with Paul Dennett, Mayor of Salford.
If you would like to have a loved one’s name added to the roll of remembrance which will be read at the vigil &/or carry a flag in the procession of remembrance please email: email@example.com
