Sarah Elizabeth Groves
21st June 1988 – 6th April 2013
On 6th April this year our beloved Sarah was cruelly taken from us in a manner beyond belief whilst travelling in Kashmir. On that day the two extremes of perfection and despicability came together with unimaginably tragic consequences.
At 3 pm on Saturday 8th June we will be holding a memorial event in the St James Concert and Assembly Hall, St Peter Port, Guernsey to commemorate what can only be described as an incredible life - a life filled with generosity, laughter, compassion, adventure and above all love for everyone she ever met.
The event will be informal, open to anyone and everyone who knew or knew of Sarah and bright colours are the order of the day. Due to the overwhelming publicity the tragedy received at the time and the remarkable response we have had from relatives, friends, acquaintances and even complete strangers ever since we are expecting large numbers. Proceedings will be recorded and will be relayed externally in the event of overflow.
It is essential that we have some indication of numbers and we have set up this page so that you can register to attend. This will help us in respect of organisation, safety and catering.
There are two options – the first simply registers you and any ‘guests’ by way of a free ‘ticket’. The second enables you to make a donation – however small – to the Charitable Trust being established in Sarah’s name. This Trust will support children and children’s art in some way and more will be said about its aims and objectives ‘on the day’ as they are still being finalised. We hope that through this Trust we can preserve Sarah’s legacy in a positive, meaningful and uplifting way.
Please extend this invitation to anyone you know who may be interested in joining us whilst we celebrate the life of someone so utterly beautiful and with so much ahead of her to give to the world. Sarah really was someone we were truly proud of – let’s remember her on June 8th as she would wish to be remembered.
