Light up a Life is the time of year to remember the lives of those special people who are no longer with us.

As we approach the festive season, it is a time when the memories of our loved ones are even stronger and their absence may be felt more deeply.

Supporting our Light up a Life appeal is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one – whether they received care from our hospice or not – at Christmas time.

Hospice care is about so much more than the medical care. Everyone we care for at the hospice is more than a patient – they’re a person with friends and family, with hopes and ambitions for the future.

This year, our appeal is being supported by Jema and Adam Easdon. Their Mum, Liz, died in 2018 and Jema explains why Ayrshire Hospice care is so special and so important to both of them. Read Jema and Adam's story

Your gift today will help pay for just a little of the nursing care that our team will be providing to patients and their families over Christmas.

  • £20 could pay for a Christmas Day celebration for two patients.
  • £50 could enable a patient's family to stay for two nights close to their loved one at Christmas in our 'Wee House'.
  • £100 could help towards a home visit by a community nurse, enabling a patient to stay home with their family at Christmas.
  • £235.56 is enough to pay for the care of one patient in our In-Patient Unit for the whole of Christmas Day.

With your support, we can help patients and families across the whole of Ayrshire create special memories this Christmas and make the most of the time they have together, no matter how long or short that time may be.

Thank you.

We'll also be hosting a virtual Light up a Life Christmas concert on Sunday 28th November at 7.15pm.  We’ll be joined by a variety of musical treats featuring choirs, theatre groups and vocalists who together, offer an uplifting celebration of local voices and music, as we come together virtually to remember loved ones.
