Hundreds of people in the local community are dedicating lights on the St. Vincent’s Hospice Christmas tree in memory of someone special.
Light up a Life this Christmas
St. Vincent’s Hospice are inviting members of the public to sponsor a light on their Christmas tree in memory of someone special this Christmas to help support their services for people with life limiting conditions.
The Hospice will light up the tree as part of their Light Up a Life event which takes place on Sunday 26 November at 5pm with carol singing, readings, mince pies and hot drinks.
Commenting on the event, Kate Lennon, Chief Executive Officer of St. Vincent’s Hospice, said: “Light Up a Life is a very special time for everyone at the Hospice and people all across Renfrewshire. Even if you have never used our services, it offers an opportunity to remember loved ones and come together with people who have had a similar experience to share stories, celebrate their lives and make a positive difference as we light up our tree to welcome in the festive season.
“Every single penny raised from Light Up a Life makes a huge difference to the services we are able to offer our patients and families affected by life limiting conditions throughout our community. Whether this is caring for them in our Inpatient Unit, our Day Hospice or in people’s own homes, all of this is only possible with your support. Please, join us on Sunday 26 November, and light up a life this Christmas.”
