Care Home Staff Remembered As Part Of Hospice Appeal

Lancaster's St. John's Hospice is running its Light up a Life appeal.

Donations can be made in memory of lost loved ones - a light will be put on the Hospice's trees for each pledge.

The campaign runs throughout December and into the New Year.

It's been highlight by touching donations from Morecambe's Hillcroft Nursing Home - which has remembered three of its former workers who
died in recent years.

Deana Aldred, Activities Coordinator at Hillcroft Nursing Home in Morecambe had worked with Emma Gilhespy, Christine Martindale and Gill
Maguire.

She said: “It was such a shock to lose all three of them in such a short space of time. It affected everyone who worked here and they are
always missed.

“We like to make a contribution to the hospice every year to remember them, especially since they were so well cared for by the team there.
Keeping their memory alive is very important to us and this is a cause close to our hearts.”

Catherine Butterworth, the Head of Income Generation at St John’s Hospice, said: “When this difficult time of year is upon us, our community
takes great comfort from our Light up a Life appeal and the support we offer. The lights shine on our hospice trees, not only to remember
those that were cared for by St John’s, but all the wonderful people in our community. Each year, every light that shines allows St John’s
Hospice and its team of nurses the privilege to care for our community.”
