Local Charity Calls for Support

Local charity Peace Hospice Care is calling on the community to come together to support each other, and the patients and families the Hospice cares for, during its Lights of Love week, 7th – 11th December.  The week will include readings, poetry and songs shared on the charity’s Facebook page as well as its other social media channels, broadcast at 6pm on each day during the week.  

Usually, the Lights of Love event gives the local community the opportunity to remember those who have died and to share dedication messages.  This year, due to the pandemic, the event is being hosted online and shared with followers and the wider community.  Dedications to those who have died can be made by writing a message on a Peace heart (available via: crichardson@peachospicecare.org.uk) which will be displayed at the Hospice.  Dedications can also be made via the charity’s new, online, dedication page.  More information is available at:  https://peacehospicecare.dedicationpage.org/lightsoflove2020

Speaking about the event, Jo Marovitch, Director of Patients Services, said: “Even though we are apart, we can all still join together virtually to remember those who have died.  So many people have felt supported over the years with our annual Lights of Love event.  We have to do things differently this year but I think as a community we can all pull together to be there for each other and show support. We are also delighted that this year M.K.Ginder & Sons is kindly supporting our event.”

This year the charity is not only asking the community to support the event by visiting its Facebook page during the week.  It is also asking everyone to send on a photo or film clip of them or their family turning on a light in support of the Hospice, its patients and their families and the wider community.  Those photos and film clips will be shared by the charity on its Facebook page, and other social media channels, during Lights of Love week (7th-11th December). All photos and film clips should be sent to Charlie Richardson at: crichardson@peacehospicecare.org.uk

Peace Hospice Care needs £6 million every year to deliver its free services.  For every £1 of income it receives, less than 32p comes from the NHS.
