Wirral Hospice St John’s Light Up A Life is quite a few months away yet but we are inviting families to come forward if they might like to help us with this year’s campaign. We know how special our lights are to so many of our supporters in remembering and celebrating loved ones, and we are very grateful for the incredible support we get at this time of year.
If you would be happy to share why you take part in Light Up A Life, we think that it would be lovely for other supporters to read about your stories if we were able to share them on our facebook page and on twitter in the months leading up to when the lights are officially switched on (this year’s switch-on will be at 5.30pm on Sunday 6 December).
Our local newspaper, the Wirral Globe, is very supportive of Light Up A Life so it would be lovely to also share some of your stories with them too if you’d be happy for us to do that.
We appreciate that Light Up A Life can be a very emotional time so this is to reassure people that we are not looking to exploit people’s grief; we only want to share stories where people are happy for that to be the case and where they feel strong enough to do so.
If you would like to help us in some way or find out what information may be needed before you decide if you’d like to help, please can you contact Teresa Nightingale on 0151 343 0778 (Fundraising office is open Mon to Fri 9am-5pm) or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details and a good day/time to be called. We look forward to hearing from some of you and learning more about why Light Up A Life means so much to you and your family.
