December is a special time of year. As well as the celebrations, it’s a time for reflection and cherishing precious memories of those no longer with us.
We know light is a significant and comforting symbol for many people. As well as putting up lights on our specialist unit in memory of loved ones, we will be celebrating with a special Christmas tree in our conservatory, The View, a room that holds lasting memories for so many whose lives have been touched by St Luke’s. By dedicating a bauble to hang on the tree, you can help us create a tree of combined memories.
As part of your Light up a Life donation you will receive:
• A light on display at our specialist unit at Turnchapel.
• A personalised Light up a Life Christmas greeting card bearing the names of your loved ones.
• A beautiful bauble for you to personalise to hang on the Christmas tree at our specialist unit if we receive your donation by 18 December 2018.
Your contribution will also help light up the display at our specialist unit for patients and their families to enjoy over the festive period.
Light up a Life not only gives you the chance to have a great experience but also makes a real difference to the patients of St Luke’s Hopsice Plymouth in the last months, weeks and days of life. Last year with the help of our local community raising money through events like Light up a Life, our nurses were able to care for more than 3,500 patients – a need that is growing year on year: all donations are vital.
