Free (donations for flowers & messages)
Floating Bye is an uplifting gathering on Instow beach, where we place flowers with messages to loved ones on a beautiful handcrafted willow structure on a raft, which is then towed out on an ebbing tide by local gig rowers. It is a beautiful way to honour someone's memory and come together knowing we are not alone in missing someone close to us.
You are warmly invited to join us for this year's very special Floating Bye event, from 3pm on Sunday 12th June on Instow Beach by the sand dunes.
This special event on the beach will be lead by members of our Supportive Care team. We will gather together and listen to comforting words and gentle music while we remember those we love, who are no longer with us. Your family and friends are very welcome to join us.
If you are unable to attend but still wish to be part of Floating Bye this year, you can make your donation online and add your message using the button below. It will be our pleasure to place your message and flower on the raft, on your behalf.
We look forward to welcoming you to this very special event and thank you for your kind support.
Please kindly note, local car parking charges apply.
