We will be hosting a Death Café on Wednesday 11 May11am – 2pm at the Heart of the Campus, Sheffield Hallam University, Collegiate Crescent that will provide stimulating conversation, inspiring activities and the opportunity to meet people from a variety of relevant charities, campaigns and organisations.

Activities will include:

  • An interactive play about end of life conversations
  • Memory boxes
  • Open discussion using FINK cards
  • Tree of wishes
  • Hello My Name Is campaign
  • Writing your Will
  • Discussing funeral options
  • Organ donation
  • Complimentary therapies
  • and of course, tea and cake!

Last year’s Death Café was very successful and this year we will also be holding virtual cafes focusing on different topics each day that relate to conversations about end of life care, including:

  • Monday 9 May  – Create your ‘bucket list’
  • Tuesday 10 May  – Advance Care Planning
  • Wednesday 11 May – Death Café 
  • Thursday 12 May –  Digital legacy
