We are using a pop up shop all week to encourage discussion about dying matters. This will be manned by health care professionals. A colourful coffin with the Dying Matters and YODO logos will be displayed in the window and is likely to generate some debate. The local TV, Radio and paper have all been very supportive.
Every morning next week, the local radio station will broadcast daily readings by people;
The Lead Cancer Nurse, a representative from the Arts Commission, a Palliative care Consultant, a representative from the Health Promotion Unit and our Chief Minister from the States of Guernsey. Our Hospital Chaplain will be conducting the Sunday Service.

The Arts Commission have created a wall as per Candy Chang which has been on show in Market Square all week to encourage people to think about "Before I die, I want to.........". People have written some thought producing comments.

We will upload some photos during the week.
