After almost six years, the work of The Bucket Project has come to an end on Friday 30th June 2017. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our members, supporters and everyone who has helped us to keep the topic of death alive. A special thank you to Marie Curie Hospice Liverpool for hosting us and to Liverpool CCG (formerly Liverpool PCT) for investing in a unique piece of community engagement which worked to make death, dying and loss less of a taboo.
It has been a privilege to lead on this project and I have enjoyed every part of this role, from the creativity and freedom to develop it in my own vision to research and delivering annual Dying Matters events – it has been the best job I have ever had.
Although I am sad to say goodbye to The Bucket Project, I am moving on to something new and the complete opposite of talking about death – I am preparing to welcome a new life into the world!
I’d just like to remind you all to live in the moment, appreciate what you have, love those that are important to you and don’t be afraid to say how you feel. Life is for living!
If you would like to request any hard copies of our newsletters or promotional materials, some may still be available at the Marie Curie Hospice Liverpool, Speke Road, Woolton, L25 8QA. To check in advance, please call 0151 801 1400 and ask to speak to a member of the administrative team.
Electronic versions of the reports and newsletters will remain available on this blog and you can still see our old posts on:
Thank you all for helping to keep the topic of death alive and encouraging others to see death, dying and loss as part of normal life.
I will miss you all.
