A NATIONAL memorial service will be held in Melbourne next week to pay respect to those who lost their lives in the Malaysia Airlines MH17 disaster.
The multi-faith service is scheduled for Thursday August 7 at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.
Thirty-seven Australians including a Burleigh Heads woman were killed when the plane was shot down in East Ukraine two weeks ago.
