Laura Tellwright is part of the fundraising team at Saint Francis Hospice. Here she shares why Light Up a Life is such an important campaign and invites people to attend one of its free remembrance services this December.
Saint Francis Hospice’s annual Light Up a Life is the perfect opportunity for people to come together to shine a light in celebration of their loved ones who have died. Honouring those we love and have lost is such an important way to keep their memory alive. While the festive period can be difficult, together we can light up their lives by sharing our precious memories.
This year, Saint Francis Hospice will host four free to access remembrance services:
Saturday 2nd December – Saint Francis Hospice *Fully Booked*
Sunday 10th December – St Thomas’, Brentwood – 2:30pm
Saturday 16th December – Brentwood Cathedral – 2pm
Sunday 17th December – St Edwards’, Romford – 3pm
Anyone is welcome to join these free inclusive services and it would be wonderful to see you there. Free tickets are going quickly, so to avoid disappointment book yours by Friday 24 November 2023. Tickets are available online at sfh.org.uk/lual alternatively you can contact the hospice’s Supporter Relations Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them directly on 01708 753319.
A huge part of the hospice’s Light Up a Life is fundraising in memory to help Saint Francis Hospice give people the compassionate care they deserve. The hospice needs to continue to help more people make the most of moments they have left together, especially during the festive period.
If you are able to do so, a donation to the hospice would be warmly received. Times are difficult at the moment, so any amount you can kindly donate would be appreciated. If you would like to donate, you can visit their website or contact the hospice’s Supporter Relations Team on the above contact details.
Just £35 can provide a precious hour of personal hospice support on Saint Francis Hospice’s ward. This makes all the difference to people in their care, and to their loved ones.
Regardless of whether you can donate or not, Saint Francis Hospice’s remembrance services are free to attend, and open to anyone, so they do hope to see you there as part of the hospice community. Visit www.sfh.org.uk/lual today to get support.
