Claire Lisle remembers her mum, Linda Todd, by taking part in Light up a Life:

“It will be 11 years this New Year’s Eve since mum died at the Hospice, aged 52. We celebrate how lucky we were as a family to have her and remember her always, but especially at Light up a Life each year. It seems especially symbolic for us to come to the service given that she died at Christmas time.

Even after all these years it has become a tradition to come to the Hospice on New Year’s Eve as a family and bring flowers in memory of mum.

My mum had come to St Oswald’s during the day to take part in crafts and other day therapies, we had all developed a fondness for the staff and mum loved it there. When the time came, we all knew that we wanted mum to stay on the Hospice’s inpatient ward for end of life care."
