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.
You are warmly invited to attend one of our Light up a Life services this year:
Saltash Wesley Methodist Church, Wednesday 5 December, 7.00pm.
Tavistock St Eustachius Church, Thursday 6 December, 7.00pm.
The Minster of St Andrew’s, Plymouth, Tuesday 18 December, 2.00pm, 5.30pm and 7.30pm.
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 is kindly sponsored by Western Power Distribution (WPD), the electricity distribution network for the South West, Wales and the Midlands.
When you’re very ill and receiving St Luke’s specialist care at home, it’s so important to know there’s help at hand in the event of a power cut. This is even more vital if you’re reliant on medical equipment, such as an oxygen machine, that relies on electricity.
As most healthcare professionals will know, WPD provides a FREE Priority Register Service to ensure people who are elderly, very ill or disabled receive priority help when there’s a power cut.
Once you’ve registered, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ll receive advance warning of any planned interruptions to power. And – if there’s an unplanned power cut – a phone number on which you can get straight through, plus information updates as quickly as possible.
