Hospice launches annual Light up a Life remembrance campaign

With the festive season not far away, Tynedale Hospice at Home has launched its Light up a Life campaign.

Through Light up a Life, Tynedale Hospice at Home invites people to remember a loved one who has died by making a donation in their memory.  In return for a donation – no matter how large or small – you will receive a card with your loved one’s name (s) inside and a memory star to write your own message on.  This can be brought to one of the Hospice’s dedicated Light up a Life services or used to hang on your own Christmas tree at home.

Charlotte Pearson, Fundraising Manager for Tynedale Hospice at Home, said: “Christmas can be a particularly difficult and poignant time for people who have lost someone they love and Light up a Life is all about providing the opportunity for people to remember them.

“As part of the campaign, Tynedale Hospice at Home is hosting three Light up a Life remembrance services where there is an opportunity for quiet reflection to remember those who have died.  These services are family-friendly and are open to everyone, regardless of whether you have experienced the services of Tynedale Hospice at Home – everyone is welcome.”

The Light up a Life services are taking place at:

Hexham Abbey – Saturday, 1 December at 3pm
Prudhoe Methodist Church – Tuesday, 4 December at 6pm
St Mary’s Church, Ponteland – Saturday, 8 December at 3pm

All funds raised will support the work of Tynedale Hospice at Home which provides hospice nursing care to people in their own homes, Family Support Services and a Hospital Transport Service to people living in Tynedale, West Northumberland, Ponteland and the surrounding areas.

To make a donation to Light up a Life, or to find out more, please call the Fundraising team on 01434 606 444 or visit www.tynedalehospice.com/event-light-up-a-life
