Local people have been asked to join in with Foyle Cruse Bereavement Care in their Annual Footprints Walk next Saturday.

The event will begin at 11.00am on Saturday May 16 starting from the Cruse Office, 4 Dacre Terrcce across Craigavon Bridge, along Duke Street and Waterside Link, entering Ebrington Square and across the Peace Bridge.

The Mayor Elisha McCallion will be there to start the walk.

The Footprints Walk is an opportunity for clients, volunteers and friends of Cruse to walk and remember past loved ones. Cruse has been supporting bereaved people in the city and surrounding areas for the past 26 years. In the last year alone volunteers have donated over 6,800 volunteer hours and have supported over 300 people through their bereavement journey.

It is hoped by bringing people together it will increase awareness of the service and help raise much needed funds so they can continue to offer a free service to those who need it most. The service is delivered by highly trained volunteers who offer one to one bereavement support and counselling, telephone support, and also bereavement care for children and young people, together with information on bereavement and group work.

To join the walk contact the office on 71262941 to register your interest.
