Tuesday 15th April 2008 will be the nineteenth anniversary of the disaster in Sheffield that cost 96 fellow fans their lives.
As is our custom, the Hillsborough Family Support Group are organising a memorial service to mark the occasion and to remember those who died.
The service will be inter-denominational and will take place on the Kop at Anfield. It will commence at 2.45pm, include a minute’s silence at 3.06pm and conclude at about 3.30pm with the singing of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.
Tickets are not required and we extend an open invitation to you to join the families, the Directors, officials and players of LFC plus thousands of fellow football fans in our annual act of remembrance.
This year is expected to be exceptionally well attended and we would ask that you allow adequate time and plan to be in your seats by about 2pm.
We light a candle to remember each individual life that was extinguished prematurely and we rely upon the eternal flame of the Hillsborough Memorial to burn some light into the darkest night.
For many, Tuesday April 15th will be just a normal working day and there will be others who are unable to attend – despite wishing otherwise. We invite them to join us in spirit and spare a thought, say a private prayer or even light a candle in their minds.
