The Memorial Mile 


On the 25th November we will be walking our first Memorial Mile. This years charity is the Phoenix Support Group at St. Lukes Hospice. We will be leaving our Chapel at 11am following the route  (right) to the Winsford Shopping Centre, where we will have a short service. Everyone is then invited back to the Golden Lion for refreshments.

The Memorial Mile is primarily about remembering someone you have lost but if we can help raise money or the Phoenix group at the same time. They help children and young people who have lost a parent.

We will give everyone a name tag to say who they are walking in memory of.

You can raise money in any way you want, sponsorship , silly clothing, dyed hair, three legged walk, etc, or you can just do the walk . There is no entrance fee.

We will be providing people with bubbles as during the service we will release them to heaven/the skies.

We will be accompanied on our walk by a Bag piper and met in the town centre by the Salvation army band and local singer Sam Lyon.

St. Lukes Phoenix Support Group


It can be very difficult to explain to children what is going on when a loved one becomes ill or there is bereavement in the family. It can be hard to cope with their reactions when you are uncertain of your own, or you may feel a need to protect them from the emotional upset.

St Luke’s is experienced in supporting young people and we can help you when it comes to having difficult conversations with children. We can arrange counselling sessions for children individually or as part of the whole family.

We have a bereavement group specifically for children aged six to seventeen called the ‘Phoenix Project’ which provides a supportive, safe environment where children can feel accepted. It helps them to accept the loss of someone close to them by meeting other children in a similar situation, providing practical tools to help them to cope and most importantly by having fun! 

Trained staff members facilitate the age appropriate sessions, leading fun activities ranging from arts and crafts to storytelling and games.

The group meets on a regular basis in the Hospice, from 6.30pm – 8.15pm on the third Thursday of each month. Children need not have any prior connection to St Luke’s, only to have experienced bereavement through illness.

For more information please contact our Family Support Team on 01606 555693 or at fsu@stlukes-hospice.co.uk.
