With Christmas quickly approaching, this year more than ever – our thoughts are with family and friends who are no longer with us.
Over the last 5 years we have gathered inside the Hospice in memory of those we have loved and lost and taken time to remember the treasured moments they gave us. Sadly, this year we cannot gather at the Hospice as a group, but we are extending a warm invite for you to join us from the comfort of your own home for our Light a Light service on Friday 11th December at 7pm.
The service will be live on our Facebook Page www.facebook.com/KilbrydeHospiceCharity. Don’t worry if you don’t have Facebook, the link will be available on this page from 6.45pm on Friday 11th December to enable everyone to view the ceremony. During our virtual service we will light up our tree of remembrance as a symbol of a life remembered and treasured. It will be an opportunity for you to take time to reflect and to think about your own precious memories.
Light a Light is for everyone and a celebration that is open to all and not just for patients and families who have been cared for by the hospice. It is for everyone who wants to remember a loved one.
If you are unable to join the online service please don’t worry as we will be sending you a beautiful Light a light pack to allow you to reflect and remember at a time that suits you.
The name of your loved one will be written onto our Doves and will hang from the tree alongside the names and dedications of others. This year we will also be illuminating a candle which will be placed around Tony’s path. This will also be made available for you to view on our website.
Dedicating a light is not only a way of remembering someone, it is also a special way to support Kilbryde. Your kind donation will enable your hospice to continue to be here for other families who need our help in the future, ensuring they have the chance to spend precious time together whilst receiving the best possible care.
Please leave the name(s) of your dedications on the notes section in the next step of your order.
For the lights you dedicate, we will send you a Light a Light Christmas Card inscribed with the name of your loved one and with space to add your own special message should you wish. Your dedication will also be displayed on our tree of Remembrance.
