Meet your Nottingham Hosts

He is a final year PhD student at the University of Nottingham, where he studies bacteria. When he is not studying, he is either watching TV with his partner, reading sci-fi books, or playing football. Mark lost his mum to suicide in 2017 and since his life has become a rollercoaster as he continues to come terms with living with grief. Having attended Let’s Talk About Loss meet ups since April 2018, Mark was excited to become a Host as he wants to be able to provide the kind of support he was offered when he first joined.

When she’s not studying, she’s waitressing, boxing, running and drinking a lot of coffee most preferably in the form of espresso martinis with friends. Betty lost her mum the first term she was at Uni to a brain tumour and is therefore a Host for Let’s Talk About Loss in the hope of being able to support fellow students in an already uncertain time of life as they navigate both the physical and emotional symptoms of grief. As an aspiring Events organiser, her passion is bringing people together and she is keen to use this skill set within the grief community in Nottingham to facilitate us coming together to support one another in our collective experience as well as to have fun together as we aspire to share joyful moments with each other despite continually working through our grief.

Got questions or want to speak to us?


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.
