Our annual Lights of Love event will look a little different this year

As we head towards Christmas we wanted to find a way for you to remember those you have lost and for us to be together in a new and different way. Our annual Lights of Love event is so important to everyone and we hope that you will join us as we remember together. You can make a dedication to your loved one and we will create a star and hang it on our hospice tree for you.

2020 Lights of Love event on Facebook Live

On Sunday 13th December join us on a Facebook Live event from the gardens at St Wilfrid’s Hospice. This will include readings and music, lighting the Lights of Love candle and our beautiful Christmas tree. The service will be free to access and full instructions on how to tune in will be available on our website in the coming weeks.

Your donation will help ensure that no one dies alone, afraid or in pain

The coronavirus pandemic has changed many things for St Wilfrid’s, but not the care that we give our patients. We have remained committed to our philosophy that no one should die alone, afraid or in pain; our wonderful care team have supported patients and families in the same way that they have always done. With your help and continued support, we will continue to do so. We ask that you consider making a donation to St Wilfrid’s this Christmas.
