Marie Curie is calling on everyone in Bradford to get involved in Light Up the Night and turn the shortest day into the brightest night to remember loved ones lost.
The charity’s festive fundraiser will see people and businesses pledging £100 to dedicate a lantern in memory, to raise money and light up the festive season for local families affected by terminal illness. Each person taking part will receive a lantern of their own to display at home and Marie Curie staff will add a lantern with the person’s message on to their display at the Bradford Hospice on Tuesday 21 December.
Amanda Warrent, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser in Bradford said:
“Christmas can be a difficult time for those who are bereaved, living with a terminal illness or caring for a loved one at the end of life. By taking part in Light Up the Night, you can help us continue to be there for everyone who will need us now and in the future. Thank you!”
