Northamptonshire Charity Lights Up a Life at Northampton General

IMG-20191206-WA0020Tree lighting

The Northamptonshire Health Charity and Northampton General Hospital are remembering and honouring loved ones during the festive season with their tree of light.

The tree, located at the Billing road entrance of the hospital, has been dedicated to over 140 loved ones who have passed away or who have been gifted a light by a loved one. The lights displayed on the tree will serve as a tribute to family, friends and patients who may not be here or who have been nominated to have a light dedicated to them.

Alison McCulloch, head of fundraising at the Northamptonshire Health Charity thanked the public for their support “We would like to thank everyone who has supported our Light Up a Life evening. We are honoured that we can help the local community to remember and celebrate their loved ones at this time of year and are delighted to see so many lights pledged on the tree. This is our first tree lighting evening at Northampton General Hospital and we hope people will enjoy some festive cheer when they visit the hospital.

“It is also a chance for us to reflect and thank everyone who has fundraised for the charity and helped us to provide support to local NHS organisations. We hope to continue working with the public next year and raise even more money to support our hospitals”.

Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Sheran Oke, was delighted to attend the event “I would like to thank Northamptonshire Health Charity for their support in organising this fantastic evening for us. Reflecting on loved ones is particularly important to us and being able to honour people in this way whilst spreading some festive cheer means a lot to all of us here this evening.

Thank you to everyone who has dedicated a light, to our estates team for their support and to our choir for their performance on the night”.

Lights can be purchased from the charity until Friday 20th December and a light will be dedicated on our tree to your loved one. The dedication for a light is £5 each or 3 for £10. For more information please contact the charity on 01604 626927 or email
