Bristol event celebrates the lives of loved ones lost to drugs & alcohol.
On Saturday 3rd December, families and friends across Bristol and the South West will come together to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved-ones who have died as the result of drug and use.
This unique memorial event held in central Bristol’s St James Priory is the 7th annual ‘Celebration of Life’ organised by Bereavement Through Addiction (BTA), a charity established by two parents, Joan and Paul, who lost a child as the result of addiction in 2008.
This year’s event will be led by friends and family members and feature contributions of readings and personal stories, a sermon by Reverend Joanna Price and performances by the Gasworks Singers and Bristol’s recovery choir, Rising Voices.
During the event, the names of loved ones will be recorded in a memorial book and read out. Mulled apple juice and mince pies will be served after the event at 5pm.
This event is being run in partnership with Bristol City Council's Substance Misuse Team, Bristol Drugs Project (BDP), Developing Health & Independence (DHI) and a range of dedicated individuals.
