Meditation for Colin Hughes

Meditation for Colin
As you may know Colin Hughes passed away last Saturday (peacefully at his sisters in Northumbria). His funeral is on 12th August at 2.30pm at Durham Crematorium.

For those unable to make the journey but who may wish to remember Colin, we are
having a meditation at the Hope Centre in his memory and to be of joy in celebration of a lovely guy who helped so many and brought a smile to so many faces.

You may not even know Colin’s second name! He came regularly to Meditation and introduced many of his friends and colleagues. He was often sporting a funny T shirt, Loud waistcoat, Bright/Jokey socks and always blessed us with his droll sense of humour. He was a great support and inspiration to many struggling and recovering from their difficulties.

If you wish to come to mediate with us please let me know (no need to book but it will help with catering if we know vague numbers).

PLEASE forward this information to anyone you know who may be interested to come and join in spirit with Colin’s friends and family up in the North East. Please also feel free to use your Social media to let Colin’s many friends know that we will be remembering him on 12 August.
