Will your company be a leading light for us this Christmas?
Light up a Life is our most important annual fundraiser and offers your company the opportunity to support our patients and their loved ones and in turn be recognised for your generosity. It is an ideal opportunity not only to reach a large audience, but also to do so in the firm knowledge that you are making a tangible difference to the lives of so many patients here at Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services.
In 2017, Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services supported almost 4,300 patients and their families – a 20% increase since 2010. We provided over 10,700 specialist palliative homecare visits – a 44% increase since 2010. To meet this growing demand, we undertook our most ambitious project in our history: to develop a new state-of-the-art Specialist Palliative Care Unit comprising 36 single rooms at our site in Harold’s Cross. In April 2018, An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar and Minister for Health, Simon Harris, officially opened this new Unit, marking an exciting new chapter for our organisation.
The building cost of this redevelopment, €13.6 million, has been 100% funded by donations from companies, individuals and organisations such as yours.
This new unit enhances that care, bringing comfort, dignity and peace of mind to our patients and their families – in their final days. We now continue to fundraise for further expansion and development so that we can deliver optimal care in the right environment for all of our patients. Light up a Life is our most important annual flagship event that offers your company the opportunity to be part of our expansion and development, not to mention support our vital frontline work.
Your corporate gift this Christmas will make a real and lasting difference to the quality of life for patients and their families across our Hospices at Harold’s Cross and Blackrock.
