THE names of the first people to be remembered as part of the Prince of Wales Hospice’s Light up a Life Campaign have been printed in this week’s Express.
All the names have also been placed in special Books of Remembrance in South Elmsall library.
The campaign gives people the chance to remember a loved one this Christmas by sponsoring a light in the hospice’s gardens. So far it has raised more than £10,000.
Hospice fundraiser Tom Belt said: “A huge thank you to everyone who has sponsored a light. It can be difficult at Christmas when we think of those who aren’t with us. Light up a Life gives you the chance to have something there for your loved one, shining bright reminding you of the memories you had together.”
The names of those being remembered will continue to be printed in the Express weekly until December 20.
Dedications must be in before December 12 to remember your loved one in this way.
The Books of Remembrance will continue to be in local libraries and the hospice itself over Christmas and the lights will shine for all those remembered until the Twelfth Night of Christmas.
Mr Belt said: “We thank the Express and our libraries for supporting our campaign. We know the difference it makes. We hope others will remember their loved ones in the same way and help us continue to provide the best possible care we can.”
