Willow Wood helping people to connect at Christmas

Remember loved ones by leaving a message for them in the Willow Wood Hospice ‘Lights of Love’ book.  

Lights of Love is an initiative created to remember lost loved ones or reach out to those who are far from home.  

By paying a small donation, you can leave a message in the online book which can be accessed by loved ones across the globe. The donation will go toward the hospice and its specialised services, funding everything from a Christmas party to a physiotherapy session for patients.  

Willow Wood’s chaplain, Eddy Inglis, added: “I think we’ve all seen the effects enforced separation has had, we all need interaction with loved ones to flourish and to thrive.  

“Special occasions such as Christmas and the New Year are times when we want to reach out to each other and if we can’t physically embrace our nearest and dearest, then we can help reach out with a message of love.” 

You can leave a message and find out more at their website here.  

They’ll also be two celebratory carol services held by the hospice. Free to attend, the details are as follows;  

  • Tuesday 7 December, Glossop Parish Church  

  • Sunday 12 December, Albion Church in Ashton
