Please join with us to remember and celebrate the life of someone special to you as
part of our annual Light up a Life campaign
The death of someone you love is undoubtedly the hardest thing any of us will go through, and Christmas can be a particularly difficult time of year when you are missing someone special.
Light up a Life is a wonderful way for our community to come together to remember, reflect and celebrate the lives of those loved ones we are unable to spend Christmas with this year.
We invite you to be part of our special Light up a Life campaign, whereby you can remember your loved one by having their name and a dedicated message on both our ‘virtual’ and physical Christmas tree.
You can either make your dedication directly onto our virtual tree by clicking here or contact us, either way we will ensure that your dedication appears on both or virtual and physical tree.
Our physical tree will this year be located in the reception area of Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan Community Hospital, NP23 6GL
Alongside your dedication, if you are able to donate to our Light up a Life campaign, this will help us continue to fund the much-needed work we do within our community, supporting all those affected by a life limiting illness when they need us the most. We understand that times are difficult for everyone, but however small your donation, please be assured it really will make a big difference to the lives of the patients, families and bereaved relatives we support.
Sadly, Maria will be remembering her daughter Sophie this Christmas who died last November, aged 26.
“At first I was glad just to have a point of contact to answer all my questions, but as Sophie became more unwell we needed more support from the Hospice. Sophie really enjoyed having Complementary Therapy as it not only helped with her pain, but also helped her relax and switch off”.
Your kind gift will help ensure the Hospice is there to continue supporting families like Maria’s, making sure they have the care and support they deserve, when they need it the most.
