A Diss-based funeral home is inviting those who have lost a loved one to join them on a Walk of Remembrance, raising funds for the Salvation Army.

There will be two routes on Sunday, August 2, a three-and-a-half mile walk or a shorter route of one mile taking in the town centre. After a minute’s silence has been acknowledged, a dove release will mark the start of the walks at 11.30am and both walks provide the opportunity to visit St Mary’s Church where Rosedale will place a special ‘Book of Remembrance’ for families to leave a message and light a candle.

Richard Green, founding Funeral Director, said: “We hope that the walk will allow families and individuals the opportunity and time to reflect and remember as well as helping to make a difference to other people’s lives nationally and internationally.”
