Tree kept mem­o­ries of loved ones alight

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

MEM­O­RIES of lost loved ones were kept alive, helped by a highly suc­cess­ful Light Up A Life cam­paign run by East Cheshire Hospice.

The sea­sonal ap­peal raised more than £22,000 in do­na­tions from sup­port­ers cel­e­brat­ing the life of some­one spe­cial.

More than 800 writ­ten trib­ute mes­sages were dis­played on baubles on a Christ­mas tree in the hospice chapel as part of a wider Light Up A Life fundrais­ing cam­paign dur­ing De­cem­ber.

A ser­vice of re­mem­brance at which Prest­bury Choral So­ci­ety pro­vided en­ter­tain­ment was at­tended by a record num­ber of peo­ple, un­der­lin­ing the ap­peal’s pop­u­lar­ity.

East Cheshire Hospice events man­ager Jes­sica Ruth said: “It was the first year we’d held the ser­vice at the hospice and the feed­back was ex­tremely pos­i­tive. We’d like to thank ev­ery­one who made a do­na­tion to sup­port our Light Up a Life Ap­peal, which was a poignant way to re­mem­ber a loved one.”
