Fee

Floating Bye is a moving occasion, where we remember those we love.

On Instow beach, as the sun goes down, we gather to place a flower on a specially-made raft. Attached to these flowers are messages to those we love, but who are no longer with us.

With gentle music and with words of poetry, the raft is towed out to sea along the estuary. It is a beautiful and meaningful way to remember those special people who have made an impact in our lives.

People make a donation for the flower and card that are laid on the raft.  The money raised from this event helps us to support those who need our care, now and into the future.

Arrive from 6pm the raft will float at 7pm.

Can we help?
