More than 1,000 people recently supported Saint Michael’s Hospice by dedicating lights on their Christmas Trees and paying tribute to loved ones as part of Light up a Life.
These dedications will help to keep hospice care shining brilliantly and ensure that more families receive the support and care when they need it most.
Dedications can still be made as part of Light up a Life by visiting www.lightupalife.net, giving people an opportunity to pay tribute to loved ones whilst giving the gift of care this Christmas.
