Light Up a Life 2020
Wednesday 14th October 2020
“During lockdown we stayed all night by her bedside in the family home. It was lovely to hear her special memories and to be on hand to give all the comfort and care she needed during those final hours. As we left the house next day, all the neighbours began clapping to thank us.”
- St. Vincent’s Hospice nurse
Your gift would light up the lives of more local families this winter
We will always remember 2020. It has been an extraordinary time for us all. Throughout this challenging year, donations and gifts have enabled St. Vincent’s Hospice to be there when local people needed us most.
At the height of the pandemic, when patients and families couldn’t come into the Hospice, we found innovative ways to continue our care while maintaining the highest standards of safety. We were welcomed into homes and often stayed beside our patients through the night to give specialist, compassionate care. The support we received from our local community shone out through all the darkness surrounding us. Thank you.
Our annual Light Up a Life season encourages us all to share our stories from the past and remember special people we have loved and lost, especially as Christmas draws near. Please, use this link to share a memory, adding a star to our night sky, where you can read and share your dedication.
Your donation will make such a difference to local people affected by life-limiting illness this winter – brightening even their darkest days.
Although we cannot meet at the Hospice face-to-face this year, you are invited to join our online Light Up a Life dedication service on Sunday 29 November at 4.30pm, available from our Facebook page.
