Light up a Life has offered great solace and joy to so many people since it began in 1992. Last year, some 35,000 people were lovingly remembered through lights sponsored in their name. It is the way, so many people choose at Christmas time to remember their loved ones and the people close to them, who have lit up countless lives while they were alive and so deserve to be remembered.
Through the lights sponsored on lightupalife.ie those tributes can beam across the world. Light up a Life is the most important annual fundraiser for Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services – and it’s your participation that makes it so memorable.
Last year, Light up a Life raised €465,000 for urgent patient services and facilities improvements. As our services grow in demand we need your support more than
ever. Your support will be put to work will be put straight to work funding our essential frontline services and paying for much-needed equipment and facilities – ensuring both patients and their loving families receive all the dignity, respect and comfort they deserve.
So in sponsoring a light for €6 there is a double benefit to your moving act. In honour of the person you have lost, your gift will be directly improving the treatment and care of patients here in Our Lady’s Hospice & Care
Services in Harold’s Cross and Blackrock. 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.
