Memorial garden unveiled at Scottish Gathering

The Compassionate Friends Garden in Perth, Scotland was unveiled at the recent Scottish Gathering - a supportive weekend for bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents. All at The Compassionate Friends are so grateful to Beautiful Perth for providing us a wonderfully tranquil and stunning garden to remember our precious sons and daughters. If you do go to Perth please take a visit - it is a lovely, really special place.

The whole weekend in Perth in April was about hope, warmth and togetherness. Two recently bereaved parents commented:

“Just a wee note as I’m now home, to say thanks again from the bottom of my heart for this weekend. The hard work that has gone into giving us all that amazing time is incredible. The little touches and the warm words made the weekend something I will never forget. “

“We really appreciate from everyone all the friendship, support and for us hope, that we will find our path on this journey like no other. The different tips and ideas from so many on what worked for them will be so helpful.”
