uesday 23rd March marks a National Day of Reflection, as it has been one year since the start of the first COVID-19 lockdown in the UK.
Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP), a leading health and wellbeing charity have followed in the footsteps of Marie Curie by joining in a minute silence taking place nationally at 12 noon today and displaying bright yellow flowers throughout the Centre in Newton Aycliffe to honour those who have died during the pandemic and those who have bereaved.
Carol Gaskarth, Chief Executive of PCP, said: “It’s been a difficult year for so many people, not least for those who’ve lost loved ones. It is good to pause and timely come together one year on from the first lockdown to reflect and remember.
“We will be still and silent at 12 noon today and hold people in our thoughts.”
The PCP team will be showing their support across their social media channels, as many are currently working virtually in line with Government guidance.
The National Day of Reflection offers an opportunity to remember those who have sadly lost their lives through the pandemic, as well as a chance to come together virtaully to hope for a brighter future.
The Houses of Parliament are set to join in with a minute silence at 12 noon to show solidarity to those who have lost their lives and those who have lost family and friends.
Many other landmarks and buildings across the UK are set to illuminate yellow this evening to show their support to the challenging year we have all faced.
