It’s the one thing that will affect us all – death. So, we want to help raise awareness and get people talking so they can make the most of their lives.
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and have open conversations about life and death.
There’s no agenda or themes – just the chance to have a dead good chat.
Join us on Thursday 24 March, 10am – 12noon at the Langley Room, Linskill Centre, North Shields, NE30 2AY
Please book by calling Michelle Spencer on 0191 257 8000.
A Death Cafe is space for open and confidential discussion. However, it is not a bereavement counselling or support service. If you are recently bereaved and are seeking professional support, please contact your GP or a relevant service for advice, such as one listed below.
