Our Lights of Love service is a celebration of everything that ellenor represents – making the most of precious moments and celebrating the lives of loved ones no longer with us. Who will you be remembering this Christmas?
As the leaves start hitting the pavements and autumn turns to winter, we pull on our favourite winter jumpers, turn up the heating and start thinking about Christmas celebrations. But at ellenor, we know that for many the festive season can bring memories of loved ones who are sadly no longer with us.
Our uplifting and heart-warming Lights of Love services offer all families, whether they have been supported by ellenor’s services or not, an opportunity to pause during this busy time of year and remember those who are unable to share Christmas with us.
By donating to our Lights of Love appeal, you can dedicate a light, or number of lights, on our Christmas tree in memory of someone special. It’s a beautiful way to commemorate their life, whilst helping local families who are facing the impossibly difficult task of coping with terminal illness this Christmas. The name of your loved one, or loved ones, will then be displayed in our annual Lights of Love book, which you can view throughout the year at our hospice at ellenor Gravesend.
As a charity we rely almost entirely on the continued generosity of you, our local community. Every pound you give really does make an incredible difference. From providing vital medical support and advice through to counselling services and therapy sessions, your support will help patients and their families cope during one of the most difficult times in their lives
Our deadline for including dedications in our services for Lights of Love 2017 has now passed; however, you are still welcome to make a donation for the name of your loved one to be included in our book of names throughout 2018 at the chapel in ellenor Gravesend.
