Light up a Life Raises £130,000 for Dougie Mac

Douglas Macmillan Hospice’s annual Light up a Life campaign has raised an incredible £130,000 for patient care.

This stunning sum of money is a record amount for Light up a Life which has been running over 14 years.

Last year 9000 supporters dedicated a light on the Hospice’s Christmas tree honouring a loved one in return for a donation and an entry in our Book of Memories.

The Hospice has also hosted events at Longton Methodist Church and the Britannia Stadium which have been well received by the local community.

Jennifer Peake, Fundraising Manager commented,

“We’re absolutely delighted to have raised such an incredible amount for our Light up a Life campaign.

Our supporters turned out in force for both of our events as well as purchasing special charm bracelets which they can purchase additional charms for in future years.”

If you would like to see your entry in the Book of Memories it can be viewed online at or at the Hospice’s Spritual Space at our base in Blurton.
