Light Up a Life

We invite you to Light Up A Life this Christmas

Christmas is a special time. It’s a time to share with those we love and reminisce about Christmas we spent with loved ones that sadly are no longer with us.  Here at Southern Area Hospice Services we know how difficult that can be for many families – we understand how important it is for us to take time to remember. 

Our very special Light Up a Life Ceremony at Southern Area Hospice Services will take place on Thursday the 14th of December at 7.30pm at St. John House, Newry.  This event is not just for those families that have experienced the care of Hospice, but for the entire community and anyone that would like to make a special tribute to a loved one. 

Liz Cuddy, Chief Executive said, We know that Christmas can be a difficult time for many who are grieving and missing someone. Our Light Up a Life Ceremony is an opportunity to come together with our community, staff and supporters to remember our loved ones. Many people take great comfort in it. 

Our Hospice provides the highest standard of specialist palliative care to individuals with complex life-limiting conditions. By lighting a light for your loved one you will help us continue to provide the highest standard of specialist care to people in the Southern Trust area. We hope to welcome many supporters once again this year.” 

We would love for you to share a special message to remember your loved one, by dedicating a light on our virtual Christmas tree. To dedicate a light on our virtual Christmas tree, add a photo and leave a special message by clicking here or calling 028 3026 7711.

We would like to give our sincere thanks to Gordons Chemists & Killowen Contracts Limited for their very generous support of the Light Up A Life Appeal this year.
