Remember someone special as you Light Up a Life this Christmas

Christmas can be an especially difficult time for those of us who have lost someone special. With that in mind, Farleigh Hospice warmly invites you to support our Light Up A Life appeal, which we hold in memory of the loved ones we have lost. Everyone is welcome at our remembrance services and you can also click here to make a donation to our appeal.

Donate to our appeal

You can donate to our appeal by clicking here.

It costs over £16,500 every day for Farleigh Hospice to provide our services across mid Essex. By supporting our Light Up A Life Appeal you will be helping our doctors, nurses, bereavement counsellors and therapists to provide free care and support to people affected by a life-limiting illness or bereavement during the Christmas period and throughout the coming year.

The difference your donation makes

Farleigh Hospice cared for Nick’s wife Susie, aged 39, during the final weeks of her life, making her comfortable and giving their family precious time together before she died. We are now supporting Nick and their two young sons through our bereavement services.

Nick said, “Words can’t express how grateful I am for the care and support that we’ve received from Farleigh Hospice. The doctors and nurses always made Susie feel like she was the most important person, not just a patient. They took away her pain and made her smile. Farleigh gave Susie precious time with me, the boys and our family so we could say goodbye and I cannot thank them enough.”
