Nothing can ever truly replace someone we’ve lost, though we try our best to make them proud and remember them every single day. Whilst they might no longer be with us, a new study explores the extent to which we cherish their memory and use our own intimate ‘special places’ and events to enable us to grieve.

In line with the latest research, Sue Ryder, the national healthcare charity, are callingupon the British public to organise a ‘Walk to Remember’. Be it alone or with loved ones, we’re being encouraged to commemorate loved ones in remembrance events – as over half (54%) of Brits feel that they help us find solace.

A host of stars are backing the event, including England’s world cup hero Sir Geoff Hurst. The ‘Walk to Remember’ will raise vital funds for the charity, enabling them to keep changing lives and offering support and care to those most in need. The event invites the public to sign up to 5k, 10k, or any distance they would like, creating a route that is unique to them and centres, or finishes, around their ‘special place’.

Aston spoke to James Wright, head of fundraising at Sue Ryder and Amanda Garratt, fundraiser for Sue Ryder.
