As this difficult year finally draws to a close, it is hard to remember life before the pandemic. We have been separated from our family and friends, have had to change our entire way of living, and been forced to keep our distance from those we love most.

With Christmas around the corner, many of us are wondering what our family celebrations will look like this year, worrying that it won’t be quite as special as normal.

Christmas at LOROS somehow feels even more important this year, particularly so for those diagnosed with a terminal illness. This Christmas may be their last, and for them and their family, the festive season will be incredibly tough this year.

But you can help. By donating to the LOROS Light up a Life appeal, you can make sure someone’s last Christmas is a special one. At LOROS, our nurses work tirelessly over the Christmas period, just as they have during the whole pandemic, to ensure patients and their families feel cherished and supported. Your donation means they can continue to go above and beyond, giving families the opportunity to create lasting memories with their loved ones that they can treasure for years to come.

As a special thank you, we will acknowledge your donation by placing a light on our LOROS Christmas tree, to shine throughout the Christmas period in memory of your own loved ones. Alongside our traditional tree at the hospice, we also have a brand-new virtual tree, where you can donate and leave a message in memory of a loved one.

Whilst we won’t be able to welcome everyone to the Hospice in person this year, we are delighted to be able to invite you to join us for an extra special, virtual Light Up A Life service, streamed online on Sunday 6th December at 5pm. The new online service will last around 40 minutes and will include readings, carols and of course the traditional switching on of the LOROS Christmas tree, which is always a very poignant moment.

We will be streaming live from Facebook and YouTube and you do not need a YouTube or Facebook account to watch the service. You can watch on a computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone or smart TV. Simply follow the steaming links shown below to the LOROS Hospice YouTube or Facebook pages. Then just click the Light Up a Life video and sit back and enjoy the service. The live stream video will appear at the top in our list of videos approximately 20 minutes before the service is due to start at 5pm.
