Bella Greer’s ‘Festival Of Life’ To be Held On Thursday 19th October

0 comment

Bella’s Greer’s Festival of Life will be held later this week, on Thursday, October 19th at 10.30 a.m. for a 11.00 a.m. start. The service for all Bella’s family and friends will be held at Fylde Rugby Club, starting with a funeral service, followed by a private service at Lytham Crematorium.

After this service the invited immediate family and friends will follow Bella on foot to the crematorium for a private serve. The family would like as may people as possible at this point to walk in procession behind Bella to escort her to the gates of the crematorium. The family have asked for those attending to wear pink. Those not taking part in the private service are invited to return or stay at the Rugby Club to celebrate and share memories of Bella, which the family have said will be a ‘Celebration of the Life of our beautiful Bella – Forever 14’.

To not only commemorate but also celebrate Bella’s life, Bella’s Aunt Jaime Barber has been able to source bell tents, light-up letters and a candy floss stand, but she is especially keen to find a Waltzer ride for the day, as it was Bella’s favourite fairground feature. Jaime says, ‘We have had lots of people offer the other bits, and for free, but we really hope we can find a Waltzer, and are happy to pay – Bella loved that ride. The event will ultimately be Bella’s funeral, but it will be for all friends and family to have fun and celebrate Bela with all her favourite foods and a few fairground rides.’

At the time of writing a Go Fund me page which aims to raise awareness of young people’s mental health set up by Jaime in remembrance of Bella has raised over £2,200. Jaime says, ‘ I’m Bella’s Auntie J …. We’re raising money to increase awareness of suicide amongst young people caused by poor mental health and bullying. We need to make a change now to prevent anymore needless deaths. The resources available locally are stretched to breaking point, let’s not let Bella die in vain and raise money to spread Bella’s story and hopefully make a difference to our community, young people and families.’
