About this Death Cafe
This event is part of Dying Matters Awareness Week, placing the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement firmly on the national agenda. The 2017 Awareness Week runs from 8-14th May and is themed 'What can you do?' encouraging everyone of every age to get more active in planning for dying and death and helping support those who may need it in times of grief and bereavement, be they friends, family or in the wider community. Book tickets via Eventbrite: https://deathcafeeustonmay2017.eventbrite.co.uk.
Camden Foodbank (working under the umbrella of The Trussel Trust) are kindly donating their lovely space for this event and we will be providing tea and cake. To thank the foodbank for supporting us, we are asking attendees to bring a donation instead of paying for a ticket. You can find a list of items that foodbanks need on the Trussel Trust website, but Camden Foodbank are currently in particular need of tinned meat (eg corned beef), longlife juice, sugar, coffee, shower gel and shaving foam.
