Meet your Rochester Hosts

Davina

Davina is 30 and works in media. She loves musical theatre, Popmaster on Radio 2 and watching any challenge-based TV show - from Bake Off to Drag Race! Having lost her Dad in 2019, she sought help and advice from bereaved friends so would love to meet up and share with those who are just starting on their journey or who may be a little further down the line.

Miriam

Miriam is a 28 year old youth worker originally from Cardiff and now living in Rochester. After losing her dad in 2017 she’s found a passion for understanding grief and advocating for mental health as well as challenging the stigmas around them both. On the weekends you’ll find her open water swimming, enjoying a coffee in the garden or chatting to her cats (and partner...).

MEET UP FAQs

How will I know where you are?

Our meet up Hosts will be wearing white t-shirts with Let’s Talk About Loss written on them, so you can spot us in a crowd!

Will everyone be sad?

Definitely not. Although we’ve all been bereaved, we aim to have lots of fun at meet ups and chat about lots of things, not just grief. You won’t be asked or expected to share your grief story unless you want to.

What will we do?

Most of our meet ups are activity based, so we are doing something and not just sitting around chatting. We hope you’ll have lots of fun!

How do I sign up?

You don’t need to tell us you’re coming along – feel free to just turn up! If you want to chat to someone before coming along, email us using the form on this page, and we can always meet you beforehand.
