Meet your Rochester Hosts

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. ​

Lucy lost her Dad suddenly in 2012, and her wonderful friend Emily to cancer in 2016 – after initially struggling to talk about her own grief, she’s passionate about creating a welcome space for others to talk through their loss. Lucy loves reading, writing, walking, and eating good food!

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.
