People dealing with death are urged to offload at the region’s first mortality meet-up at Thorpe Hall hospice in Peterborough.

Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall hospice launch the city’s first Death Café on May 13, saying no subject is off-limits from euthanasia to bucket-lists and Buddhist philosophy.

Organisers expect dozen of people to attend the no holds barred event for frank conversation about life and death.

Thorpe Hall’s practice development spokeswoman, Maggie Fay, said: “The work we do here is about giving people the best quality of life.

“That’s the idea of Death Cafes – to help people think about death so they can get on with living.”

The event was adopted as part of Thorpe Hall’s on-going committment to improving care services for patients and loved-ones, but places are open to everyone.

The Death Café will take place on May 13 between 7pm and 9pm.

Tea, coffee and a slice of free homemade cake is offered on the night.
