The Mayor of North Lincolnshire Cllr John Briggs and Mayoress Joanne Brown have joined hundreds of supporters who turned out to support Lindsey Lodge Hospice’s first ever Light up a Life services.
The charity-run Hospice’s Light up a Life campaign raised over £4,200, after it held a large service at its Burringham Road site, as well as services at Burton Methodist Chapel and Old Brumby United Church.
Hospice Chief Executive Karen Griffiths said: “After listening to feedback from our patients, families, chaplains and supporters we felt it was the right time for us to hold our own Lindsey Lodge Light up a Life campaign and we are overwhelmed by the generosity and support we have received.
“Light up a Life is a nationwide campaign, run by the hospice movement to help families and friends to come together to remember and celebrate the lives of lost loved ones. Our aim was to bring this tradition into the heart of our Hospice by holding a dedicated service around our very own tree of lights, and we would like to thank everyone who came along to make this a very special occasion, both here at Lindsey Lodge and at Burton and Ashby.”
Books of remembrance from the services are available for viewing at Lindsey Lodge Hospice, Burton Methodist Chapel and Lindsey Lodge Hospice until Sunday 6 January 2019.
