People of all faiths and none are invited to a service in York to remember those who have been lost to suicide.

Father Tony Lester, parish priest of Our Lady’s Church in the city, is among those taking part.

“Many people find it difficult to talk about bereavement, especially when it may be to suicide,” said a spokesman for the organisers.

“This service is a chance to reflect and remember loved ones who may have been lost to suicide.

“It’s also an opportunity to talk or just listen to others. Simply sharing a space and some time with others with similar experiences can help.

“We think it’s important to talk about suicide in informed, helpful and non-judgemental ways and for people who are bereaved to perhaps realise that the feelings they may have are not unique or unusual.”

The service takes place at 3pm on Saturday September 8 at All Saint’s Church, Pavement, York YO1 9NR.

Monday September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day.
