Homelessness Ends Lives : We Will Remember Them - Vigil of Commemoration

Thursday, November 5, 2020

Location: St Martin-in-the-Fields
Date and Time: Thursday 5th November, 11am-1pm


This November during remembrance week, despite the pandemic and perhaps with the pandemic making this event even more poignant and important than ever this year, we will gather to commemorate those whose lives have been shortened by homelessness in London.

We remember those who have died on the streets, in hostels and shelters, as well as those who managed to move on to more settled lives but who still relied on homelessness services. We also remember colleagues, staff or volunteers who have died in the past year for remembrance and thanksgiving.

Names

The first gesture of dignity in life is being given a name at birth and this is absent when people die homeless and in anonymity. This is why we read out the names at this annual Commemoration. Please register the names of persons you wish to be read out during the vigil by clicking on this link… https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfaiBrGYGPjfpdtN20nx2JsmW3PYRH7AnRJOhCEi-gx7fS6Eg/viewform?usp=sf_link

These should be people known to have died in the Greater London area only since 14th November 2019.

All are welcome

What's on?
