Brighton Palace Pier turns yellow for Marie Curie’s National Day of Reflection
On the evening of Wednesday 23 March, Brighton Palace Pier lit up yellow in support of the National Day of Reflection. Spearheaded by end-of-life charity Marie Curie, the day provided an opportunity to reflect on the family, friends, neighbours, and colleagues who have died over the last two years and to show support for the millions of people who are grieving.
Toni Denyer, Marie Curie Legacy & In Memory Lead for South East England, said: “While life may be beginning to return to normal for some of us, many people are still living with the pain of losing someone they love, and not being able to grieve properly. The National Day of Reflection was a time to come together, in our streets, workplaces, schools and communities to acknowledge this pain and support one another.”
“I want to thank the Brighton Pier for supporting the day by lighting up the night as a symbol of support and hope for the many people in the area who are grieving.”
