Light Up A Life Appeal

Light Up A Life – Sunday 21 November 2021

Every year we look forward to seeing the lights on the tree outside the hospice. The lighting of the tree at our Light Up A Life event is a special moment and it means a lot to us that the lights represent those that are special to you. 

We invite you to dedicate a light to someone special, to remember and celebrate their life, and make a donation to support North London Hospice. The names of everyone remembered will be entered into our annual Book of Lights along with your personal dedication. You can view your dedications on special days and anniversaries at the hospice in Finchley. Every penny raised from our ‘Light Up A Life Appeal’ helps us to support more than 3,500 patients and their families each year, at a time when they need us most. Families like Jean’s, who have experienced our care first-hand.

Mum died with dignity, and we will forever be grateful for the support we received from the staff at North London Hospice.”

When Jean Mills, 87, was admitted to North London Hospice’s Inpatient Unit in November 2019 her family prepared to say their final farewells.

But after four weeks of care, she returned home. “Mum looked great. The care she received was incredible and that short stay at the hospice bought us time for one more amazing Christmas with her,” explains Jill, one of Jean’s three daughters. “It was such a precious time. She was able to see her whole family one last time.”

Thanks to the care and support from our community doctors and nurses, Jean died peacefully at home, surrounded by the love of her family in March 2020.

“The Out of Hours team were a huge support during the final week before mum died, providing the reassurance we needed to know we were doing the right thing plus the expertise for her physical care. Mum died with dignity, and we will forever be grateful for the support we received from the staff at North London Hospice.”
