Visitors to Lincolnshire Co-op outlets are being asked for their ultimate bucket list ideas to help start conversations and break down barriers around death during Dying Matters Awareness Week.
Dying Matters Awareness Week is a national campaign which this year will run from Monday May 13 to Sunday May 19: https://www.dyingmatters.org/AwarenessWeek
From adrenaline-fuelled adventures and far-flung travel destinations to things closer to home, such as visiting a Lincolnshire landmark or watching the sunset at the coast, all sorts of suggestions about what you would like to do before you die will be collected by Lincolnshire Co-op funeral colleagues at a series of drop-in events around the county.
The ideas will be added to a board at each location to help get discussions going. The events will also be a chance to discuss future wishes and ask the Society’s friendly and professional funeral colleagues any questions.
Lincolnshire Co-op’s Head of Funerals David Dernley said: “Death isn’t an easy subject for anyone and can feel even more difficult to talk about when we’re faced with it, so it’s important that these conversations take place.
“We hope that bringing people together in these local, familiar locations to add their bucket list ideas to the mix and meet our funeral colleagues will spark lots of discussions.”
