Will you be a leading lightThe difference your support can make

In 2016 Ireland’s growing over 65s population placed huge demand on Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services. Every year must raise over €4 million to maintain current services for our many patients and families.

Our future is entirely dependent on the kindness of our loyal fundraisers and in particular on the loyal and substantial support of local companies and businesses, our Leading Lights. Your generosity provides us with the stable and secure base from which we build our care services and plan to the future with confidence.

 

Sponsor our Christmas Light Up A Life event

We are proud to be able to offer businesses the opportunity to support the vital work we do, through the sponsorship of our annual Christmas event. Based on our site in Harold’s Cross, Light up a life has been running since 1992 and now attracts in excess of 10,000 guests each year. This year’s event takes place on Sunday 4th December and promises to be one of our best events yet. The host of entertainment includes:

  • Special Guest – Christy Moore
  • MC – Ian Dempsey
  • Great lights – Ireland’s biggest Christmas Tree
  • Large stage – acts include the Palistrina Girls Choir, St Jude’s Folk Group, The Lineup, CIE Male Voice Choir and others
  • Christmas gifts – a wonderful range of cards, candles, decorations, wreaths and more will be available for purchase
  • Free mince pies and apple punch will be available to keep everyone warm

With over 10,000 attendees and strong press coverage (front cover of The Irish Times in 2015), this is an ideal opportunity not only to reach a large audience, but also to do so in the firm knowledge that you are making a tangible difference to the lives of so many patients here at Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services.
