UK national day of reflection to be held on 23 March
"A minute's silence and a national doorstep vigil will form part of a day of reflection to mark the anniversary of the UK's first Covid lockdown."
The minutes silence will be at 12noon and the doorstep vigil at 8pm.
It is hoped people will help create a nationwide "beacon of remembrance" on their doorsteps by beaming phones, candles and torches into the night sky at 20:00.
Marie Curie chief executive Matthew Reed said it was "important that we all come together to reflect on our collective loss, celebrate the lives of the special people no longer here, support those who've been bereaved and look towards a much brighter future".
