light up a lightLight Up a Life has offered great solace and joy to so many people since it began in 1992. Last year, some 27,000 people were lovingly remembered through lights sponsored in their name. In addition, a number of companies supported the campaign through generous donations that in turn helped our patients and families.

Now celebrating its 27th year, it is really heart-warming to consider the many thousands of people – patients, relatives, friends, who have been directly affected and benefited from the efforts and generosity of spirit of all those who have been involved throughout the years.

As well as an opportunity to pay tribute to those who meant so much to us, Light Up a Life is the most important annual fundraiser for Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services – and it’s your participation that makes it so memorable.

Last year, Light Up a Life raised almost €450,000 for urgent patient services and facilities improvements. Your generous donations directly support our frontline services such as our nurses, physiotherapists and social workers – compassionate staff who provide comfort and dignity to patients and their families as they live out their final days, helping families make the most of their precious time together.

So in sponsoring a light for €6 there is a double benefit to your kind and generous act. In honour of the person you have sponsored a light for, your gift will be directly supporting the loving care of patients in both our Harold’s Cross and Blackrock hospices. If you’re missing someone this Christmas, remember them – in the most magical and moving way. Light up their life. And once you have remembered your own loved ones, take some time to browse through the tributes, photos and stories shared by others.

And, if you work in a company, please consider a Christmas donation to the Hospice by becoming a leading light. Your company’s support will make a real difference and will be recognised and profiled in a number of ways.

Christmas has always been a time to remember loved ones and those close to you. So please, get involved this year and Light the Life of someone special to you.
