Light Up a Life 2020

December 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This Christmas, remember and celebrate the life of someone special by sponsoring a star.

 

Sadly, ACCORD cannot invite you to come into the beautiful Hospice grounds for our Annual Light Up a Life Service.  However, we know how important remembrance and reflection are and recognise that the service provides a great deal of comfort to you all.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to support our appeal and join a virtual service on Sunday 6th December at 6pm.

The Light Up a Life Event will be streamed live on the ACCORD Hospice Facebook page from 6pm which includes carol singing and the illumination of our Christmas lights.

We will encourage you to light a candle at home with your friends or family to remember the special people in your lives.

Facebook Page – @ACCORDHospice

You, your family and friends are invited to join us virtually for this very special occasion, a chance to take some time out and remember the special people in your lives, share memories and celebrate their lives whilst enjoying readings,

music and Christmas carols.

Anna’s Story

My sister was a generous, hospitable, loyal, trustworthy and genuine person and she was absolutely bursting with life. In her 51 years she was a shining example of a life well-lived.

Anna was moved to ACCORD Hospice in Paisley in October 2019 after being in Hospital.

The care and love Anna received from the moment she was admitted was truly overwhelming.

During her final weekend my Mum, Dad and I were able to cry and pray together with Anna. I continued to read to Anna as I had done for the last few months. All the while her two beloved dogs stood as sentinels on either side of the bed. She had a patio door in her room that opened outside and the dogs were able to come and go quite freely.

The family will be forever thankful for the love and dignity that the ACCORD staff showed my sister in her final days on this earth. We will never be able to find the words to thank them enough for the way they carried us as a family when wave after wave of grief hit us during Anna’s stay. The work of all hospices is truly humbling and in desperate need of wider support.
