On Remembrance Day (11 November 2022), we’re remembering the members of the Armed Forces who have died in conflict around the world.
At 11am on Remembrance Day, we’re holding a Remembrance service in the chapel at The Christie. The service is open to patients and staff who are onsite at the hospital, and of any faith or belief.
We are also holding a 2-minutes’ silence near the M&S in the Oak Road entrance of The Christie at 11am on Remembrance Day – anyone onsite at the hospital is welcome to attend.
Throughout the week leading up to Remembrance Day, our staff have also been paying their respects to the Armed Forces. We have put remembrance trees in the chapel at The Christie and in the Oak Road entrance. Patients and staff members have been able to leave messages of remembrance and reflection on these trees.
Children at the day nursery at The Christie have been getting involved in Remembrance Day as well. The children have been learning all about Remembrance Day and the significance of poppies for remembering those who have died in war.
The children have also been decorating their own poppy pictures. These are being displayed on Remembrance Day in the memorial garden at The Christie – this is visible from the glass corridor.
