Day of Private Reflection

24th June 2016

The WAVE Trauma Centre, Armagh marked the annual Day of Private Reflection with a poignant and meaningful remembrance ceremony for all those who have lost their lives, were injured or suffered as a result of the troubles.  The deputy Lord Mayor Cllr. Paul Greenfield together with the Rev. Rowan Zeelie offered their own reflection and support to the many individuals and families who attended the ceremony.  This was followed by prayers and verses that were read by staff members and volunteers, and guests were invited to write a short verse or name on Memory Cards and Ribbons which were later placed on the WAVE Tree of Hope in the Palace Demesne.

As WAVE has recently relocated to Abbey Street in Armagh, we took this opportunity to officially open our new centre.  Exhibits of work produced by the arts and craft groups were on display throughout the centre showcasing the magnificent work created over the years by those who come to WAVE for support.  Numerous projects such as Help the Homeless, the Uganda Appeal and the South Tyrone hospital project were also highlighted and of course the WAVE wall mural which was completed just in time for the opening!
