ANorthern Ireland Hospice fundraiser, who works on the North Coast, is encouraging everyone to support the Hospice’s annual Lights to Remember appeal.
John Phillips knows the difference that Hospice care can make and is encouraging everyone to sponsor a light in memory of a loved one.
“He said: ,“In Northern Ireland one in three people are touched by the care and support they receive from Hospice.
“This is only made possible by the generosity of the public in supporting appeals such as Lights to Remember.”
“This year many people will be spending the festive season missing a loved one. Sponsoring a light on the Hospice tree is a special way to remember them whilst helping to provide care to local adults living with a terminal illness. “Every donation, big or small, to sponsor a light goes a long way. A donation of just £30 could help pay for an hour of Hospice care.”
. The charity is hoping that it will receive support from people in the Coleraine area who wish to remember their loved ones whilst supporting Hospice.
The appeal’s target of £190,000 will help care for local adults living with terminal illnesses over the festive season and beyond.
Anyone wishing to sponsor a light for a loved one and help thousands of families across Northern Ireland can make a donation by calling 028 9077 7123 or by logging onto www.nihospice.org.
