Chris Smith’s story

Chris Smith attended for the first time after his wife Charlotte died from breast cancer in April 2017, the day after her 37th birthday.

“The Remembrance Service gave our family an opportunity to remember Charlotte. It was a way of doing something just for her and letting her know we were all thinking of her. Larger events like this can give you strength as the warmth and the love you feel being part of the wider St Christopher’s family can be powerful – especially at Christmas, which can feel like a particularly lonely time.”

“The evening wasn’t sad but more of a celebration. The Christmas tree, the lighting of candles – there was a real sense of community.”
