The Light Up a Life Christmas Appeal 

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. A time to cherish our families and friends as we celebrate the festive season.    

But some families won’t get to celebrate. At LOROS some will be preparing for their last Christmas as a family, and facing a future without their loved one. For these families Christmas will be a difficult time.   

To make a donation and dedicate a light on our virtual tree in memory of a loved one, please click on the tree above.  

Fiona’s story 

“My Mum, Ros, was a district nurse and my absolute world. At just 61, she was told she had stage 4-lung cancer. It was a terrible shock.    

“When the time came, I sat with mum for hours. Eventually, one of the nurses persuaded me to go home for a break. As soon as I got home, I got the call, saying she’d gone. I raced back to the Hospice and a lovely nurse took me in to see Mum. I just sat there and cried.    

“She told me later that Mum was adamant that she didn’t want me there when she died. It was the last thing she could do to protect you, she said. It made perfect sense.  We’re still picking up the pieces from my Mum’s death and this Christmas will be hard. Yet, thanks to the support I have received from LOROS I’ve managed to open a new chapter and look at life from a different perspective.”  

By donating just £25 to the LOROS Light up a Life appeal you can help more families like Fiona’s through the most difficult time of their lives.  

Please give the gift of care this Christmas and donate to help families whose hearts are breaking.
