Cariad talks to stand-up comedians Greg Davies (Man Down, Taskmaster) + Barry Castagnola (Neckface, Experimental) in this special live episode in association with LOROS Hospice, recorded live in Leicester in May 2019. As ever they talk grief, remembering voices + seagulls.
Greg is a patron of LOROS Hospice. LOROS is a hospice in Leicestershire, which supports 2,500 terminally ill patients and their loved ones every year. They offer a completely holistic service, with a 31 bed inpatient ward on site, as well as a day therapy, which are just two of many of the services available to patients, their families and carers. It costs £8 million to run LOROS every year, £6 million of which is relied on through voluntary income.
Each May, the Hospice takes part in Dying Matters Week, a national awareness raising campaign that encourages people to talk openly about dying, death and bereavement.
