Hospice’s fundraiser

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

THE Hospice of St Fran­cis is stag­ing a fundrais­ing event for rel­a­tives to re­mem­ber loved ones this Christ­mas.

The popular an­nual Light Up a Life Ap­peal was launched on Sun­day, with a tree of re­mem­brance il­lu­mi­nated at the hospice’s Berkham­sted grounds.

The lights in mem­ory of for­mer pa­tients at the hospice will re­main lit through­out the fes­tive pe­riod. Peo­ple can still add lights to the tree in mem­ory of loved ones and make do­na­tions if they wish.

Hospice di­rec­tor Dr Ros Tay­lor said: “As we ap­proach Christ­mas, it’s a time when we cel­e­brate, re­mem­ber and give thanks for fam­ily and friends we have lost. We nat­u­rally re­flect on mem­o­ries of those no longer with us and it can be a very poignant time, evok­ing a whole range of emo­tions.”

To add a light to the tree, or ded­i­cate a star on the hospice web­site, visit http:// lual.stfran­cis.org.uk/.

Make a do­na­tion to the hospice by vis­it­ing www. stfran­cis.org.uk/ligh­tu­pal­ife or call 01442 869 555.
