This year’s RoadPeace 2021 service will be held online
Victims of road traffic collisions will be remembered at a special service in November.
Due to the current restrictions, this year’s RoadPeace service will be held online.
Lancashire Road Safety Partnership is inviting anyone to attend who has been affected by loss or injury following a road traffic collision.
There will be speakers from a number of faiths, the emergency services, and bereaved families. You can join the service online from 9am on Sunday 21st November at www.lancsroadsafety.co.uk. The service will also remain available to view online for around 2 weeks afterwards.
Dawn Gough, interim coordinator of the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership, said: “We’re welcoming anyone to join us who would like to remember someone they’ve lost in a collision on our roads.
“The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is observed on the third Sunday in November every year and was initiated in 1993 by the charity RoadPeace.
“Friends and families of road traffic collision victims have this special day when they can feel they are not alone and that their suffering is recognised by the community.”
There will also be an opportunity for people to remember their loved ones as part of a tribute during the service. If you would like to take part in this please send an email with their name, dates, a photograph, and a few short words of remembrance to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end October.
You can find more information about the service at lancsroadsafety.co.uk. If you have any queries, please email email@example.com.
