Will your company be a leading light for us this Christmas?

Light Up A Life is our most important annual fundraiser and offers your company the opportunity to support our patients and their loved ones and in turn be recognised for your generosity. It is an ideal opportunity not only to reach a large audience, but also to do so in the knowledge that you are making a tangible difference to the lives of so many patients here at Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services.

You can watch our video here to see why our services are so special to patients and their families.

By making a corporate donation to Light Up A Life and Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services you are helping us provide care and support to over 4,000 patients at our hospices at Harold’s Cross and Blackrock.

Last year we experienced a 25% increase in patients cared for since 2010 and a 54% increase in specialist palliative care homecare visits.

To meet this growing demand, we undertook our most ambitious project –  we built a new state-of-the-art 36 bedroom Specialist Palliative Care Unit at Harold’s Cross at a cost of €14.6m – 100% of the money for building costs or €13.6m came from donors. This Unit is enhancing the care we are able to provide and enhancing the experience of patients and families at what can be a very difficult time in their lives.

Unfortunately we have witnessed a 14% decrease in state funding to Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services since 2010, so we really need your company’s help to support our frontline services in both hospices and in patients’ homes.

In supporting Light Up A Life this year, some of the benefits to your company include:

  • Demonstrating to your customers, suppliers and employees that you are giving generously to the Hospice and supporting communities in South Dublin and Wicklow.
  • The inclusion of your branding and logo on the Light Up a Life website and on event signage that will be seen by over 10,000 people in attendance at our event.
  • Invitations to our VIP reception at our Light Up a Life event.
  • Promotion of your company to our corporate partners, patients, families, staff and volunteers.
