Project Remembering Those Passed in the Pandemic Goes Online

The Lost/Found project aims to remember the lives lost during the pandemic across Perth and Kinross and the rest of the country.

Now online, the website collates memorials of the lives remembered by the friends and family of people who have passed.

Anna Day, who is managing the project, said: “It’s been a privilege to hear the stories of some of those who died.

“I’ve heard stories that made me laugh out loud but I’ve cried many times too. I hope that people enjoy reading about these extraordinary men and women and that they are remembered well.”

After a time when friends and families couldn’t meet their loved ones as they passed, hug or play music around them, the project want to make sure that chance is not missed.

It’s the first of its kind in Scotland, with the website online, in the near future, the project looks to showcase an exhibition from artists in tribute to the lives lost.

Painters, musicians and glassblowing all come together to create the 2021 ambition.

Anna Day added: “It’s also been fascinating to read about the COVID times that people have had, including Prof Dame Sue Black and Tom Kitchin. I’d love to hear from other people who want to share their experiences.”
