Celebration for Lorna Marriott

Transparent EEAST crest

We know that many of you would appreciate the chance to say goodbye to our much-loved colleague, Lorna Marriott, after the sad news of her passing.

Lorna’s funeral will be taking place at 10.30am next Thursday (21st July), at the Luton Crematorium (The Vale, LU2 8DD), with a celebration afterwards at the Leaside Hotel (LU13 1BT).

Her family would be delighted for colleagues to join them; as per Lorna’s wishes it isn’t a full-service ceremony, but we will be providing a Guard of Honour to say goodbye to her as only the ambulance service family can. If you’d like to take part in the Guard, please meet at the crematorium at 10am.

Understandably, many of our Beds & Herts colleagues will wish to attend; if you’re able to provide support and cover for shifts to allow as many of the team to do so as possible, it would be hugely appreciated. If you’re able to help, please contact West Herts station or the DLO team.

A JustGiving page has also been set up in Lorna’s memory, with donations going to Keech Hospice, which provides hospice care for adults and children with life-limiting and terminal illnesses, and where Lorna spent some time. If you’d like to donate, you can do so online via the JustGiving website, or by texting LRNA99 (followed by your donation amount) to 70070.

If you’ve been affected by Lorna’s death and would like support, please remember that the Trust’s employee assistance programme is available to you at any time. It’s free, confidential, runs 24/7 and can be accessed either on the phone or online. Just visit www.well-online.co.uk  (user name: EEASTlogin, password: wellbeing), or call 0800 085 1376.
