CHESTERFIELD-BASED Ashgate Hospice’s Lights of Love campaign has once again seen great support from the local community with over 2,000 dedications so far to commemorate loved ones.
The hospice fundraising appeal provides friends and family of lost loved ones an opportunity to remember them over the festive season with donations to the Lights of Love decorations campaign in exchange for personalised cards and online tributes.
Hospice fundraising organiser Emily Evans said: “We have been overwhelmed by the support shown to us by everyone including the business community.
“This time we had a change from the trees we normally use for Lights of Love because we have had a special tree bought in and decorated.”
Lights of Love supporters include Hope Cement Works, Beighton Construction Ltd, Hall Plant Hire, Champion Hire, Able Mix, C L Brookes Ltd and Cox Electrical who helped make this year’s tree possible.
The Lights of Love tree will shine brightly until January 5 and anyone who still wishes to dedicate a light to a lost loved one can do so by calling (01246) 567250 or by going to www.ashgatehospice.org for details.
