THE launch of the ‘Light To Remember’ fundraiser for Kerry Hospice took place at the Palliative Care Unit on Saturday.

The lights will be available to buy online until the end of December and will also be sold by Kerry Hospice volunteers in the near future. The lights are to remember loved ones who have passed away over the years.

The Light To Remember ceremony will take place at 5pm on Sunday, December 8, on the grounds of University Hospital Kerry. Each light costs €5 and will shine throughout the festive period.

The Light to Remember Christmas tree will be at the main entrance of UHK. There will be refreshments provided on the evening in the main reception area.

Candles provided by the Kerry Hospice Foundation will be lit during the ceremony. The UHK choir are providing the entertainment.

A surprise guest will officially light the tree and Deirdre Walsh from Radio Kerry will be the MC on the night. KHF will be also continue to sell lights for the virtual tree on the night.

The lights will also be sold at the Christmas markets in John Mitchels GAA Club on December 7 and 14.

The tree initiative began last year and proved a big success with much needed funds raised for the Palliative Care Unit. Click on the following link to sponsor a light and leave a tribute https://lighttoremember.com/?fbclid=IwAR05cViqDG7sZbasqZE3y-7YpxHjYtA2mC9ipp04yQGQXv0P7syfHKE-yfM
