Light Up a Life at Christmas

Light Up A Life at Christmas

A star for someone you miss

Christmas can be a really special time, however this year may be especially hard for some of us who are unable to get together as we would do normally.

We understand how difficult this may be for you right now and so we hope you will join us to honour the memory of those loved ones who are no longer with us during this poignant time.

This year Light Up A Life will look a little different to previous years as we are unable to host our multiple services across North Devon throughout December. We are however, going to be hosting a virtual remembrance service which we hope will bring you some repose to remember your loved ones in the comfort of your own homes, with time for reflection and gentle words from our Supportive Care team.
Whether or not they choose to attend our online service, most people make a donation to the annual Light Up a Life appeal via phone, by post or online. We will send you a special star that you can hang on your Christmas tree, carrying the names of those you miss. We will also include their names on a star to hang on our own Christmas tree here at Deer park, which will be available to view virtually.

Your support helps us to care for those who need our support at Christmas time - those who are facing the festive period while battling with the impact of a life-limiting illness. Your donations in memory of your loved ones means our nurses and doctors can carry on caring around the clock, right through the Christmas period. They can help patients and families make this a memorable time, in as much comfort as possible.
