Light Up A Life is Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services annual Christmas Campaign. We ask the public to support by sponsoring a light in memory of someone special, make a christmas donation, have your company make a donation or buy some of our special christmas gifts.

Our virtual Light Up A Life Ceremony will take place on Sunday 5th December 2021.

Due to Covid19 our annual remembrance ceremony will not take place in Harold’s Cross this year, however we will have a very special virtual cermeony which will stream on our website on Sunday the 5th December at 5pm.

The Light Up A Life website enables you to sponsor a light in honour of a loved one you wish to remember this Christmas. When you sponsor a light for €6, you will be invited to include a tribute to your loved one, such as a poem, a picture, a message or a precious memory.

When you have completed your light(s) sponsorship, an acknowledgement email will be sent to you. We invite you to then share your lights with your friends and family.

You will also have the option of receiving our special Light Up A Life card for sending to friends and loved ones or displaying in your own home; this special card includes a small Christmas Tree decoration and can be purchased for an additional €1 per light.

To sponsor a light, click the Sponsor a Light button at the top of the screen. You can search for names and dedications by clicking ‘Search for a Light’ then inputting the details requested.

The Light Up A Life website enables your company to support Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services through becoming a Leading Light for Hospice. Your company can donate at 4 different levels, with a corresponding donation for each level, or you can choose your own amount to donate. Everything helps and a company donation of any amount will make a difference and help our front line teams provide compassionate and specialist care to patients in our hospices and within their homes. You can make a donation online by clicking the Company Support button at the top of the screen, by telephone on 01 491 1072 or by email to Susie Cunningham at [email protected]. Thank you.

The ‘Shop’ button allows you to purchase cards, tree ornaments, books and more.
If you wish to make a donation to Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, click the donate button at the top of the screen and fill out the simple form.
