Lights on the Lake 2016

Lights on the Lake 2016  
“To be a star you must shine your own light, follow your own path and don’t worry about the darkness for that is when the stars shine the brightest.” Anonymous
Huge thanks to everyone who supported Lights on the Lake 2016. On Saturday 11 June, as the sun set, we floated hundreds of candles on the lake at Pugneys Country Park. These represented the light that families say our care team provides during a dark time in their lives.
We're very grateful to everyone who sponsored a candle to celebrate the life of a loved one and support our work. Every penny raised will help us provide free, high quality end-of-life care to local people with serious illnesses.
‘The hospice made a world of difference. The whole family was supported.’
Nick Thorpe, whose mum Liz was cared for by Wakefield Hospice
Grateful thanks to Minster Law for sponsoring the event, and to Powder Keg for the wonderful firework display they provided as the finale to this special evening.
