About Grief Wellies:

I set up Grief Wellies as a facebook site to support those who were grieving. Having been a cancer nurse for over 25 years I always thought I had a fairly good handle on death and dying. Then I lost my mum - she was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour and within 6 weeks she had died. The process for me has been surprising and one of the things I decided when starting on it was to set up a Death Cafe.  A space for people to talk openly about death and dying and everything inbetween.


What brings you to Death Cafe?

As above I have always worked in cancer nursing but since losing my mum have wanted to do more on a personal level for my local community


What would you like your legacy to be?

Tried her best, made mistakes but never promised what she couldn't do.
