Galaru – Creativity & Bereavement


This month, we’re launching Galaru – a new project that offers creative activities to support bereavement for staff, patients and our wider community. #ABUHBGalaru

We’re encouraging staff, patients and visitors at the Grange University Hospital to take a mindful moment and make an origami butterfly. Individual kits are available from The Chapel at GUH and have instructions and paper to make butterflies for reflection or remembrance.

We will be offering butterflies at all of our Hospital sites in the future and will be developing more activities throughout the year, offering doorstep journals, remote creative sessions and outside activities.
