Time to Reflect

Happy new year! 2016 looks set to be another busy and exciting year for Guy's Gift. 2015 was a good year for the team and we feel privileged to have been able to support so many wonderful families throughout Warwickshire.

Our annual Lantern Walk took place in December. A good number of Guy's Gift families joined us at Coombe Country Park and over 40 of us enjoyed meeting up, creating memory stars and going for a lantern lit walk to the memory tree in the park.

It was great to see so many families.
 Special thanks must go to Sainsbury's in Kenilworth for kindly providing festive refreshments. 

Leamington Bear had a lovely time and even joined us for our walk through the park.
There were stars aplenty to be decorated with families' messages and memories.

 When all the stars had been made and everyone was full of cake and hot chocolate, we headed out into the darkness, with only our lanterns to show us the way.

When we reached the memory tree there was time to reflect, as well as a moment to come together for a group photo.

The stars looked really pretty on the memory tree - each one unique and personal to the person who had created it.
