DAST - Reflection and Celebration of Life 2019

Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team (DAST) invited UKATA representatives to their special event at the Crooked Spire in Chesterfield, to remember those who have died of asbestos-related diseases such as Mesothelioma and Asbestosis on Wednesday 27th February 2019.

The names of 107 victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases were projected onto the archway of the Crooked Spire, Chesterfield as a poignant memorial of lives lost through work-related illnesses. Attended by nearly 200 people, including UKATA representatives the event included speeches and a poem by Pauline Smith who sadly lost her husband, Tim, to mesothelioma.

DAST helps anyone diagnosed with an asbestos related disease, throughout the East Midlands. Its holistic service also includes supporting families who have lost loved ones and has a dedicated bereavement support worker.
