Urban Edge Architecture is proud to sponsor this year’s Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice ‘Lights of Love’ concert in Peterborough. For thousands of people across the area, ‘Lights of Love’ has become an important event in the festive calendar and this year’s concert will, for the first time, take place at Peterborough Cathedral.
Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice is the only specialist palliative care inpatient unit in Peterborough and provides expert palliative care and support for people who are living with life-limiting conditions, as well as supporting their families. The ‘Lights of Love’ concert is an opportunity for families to remember and celebrate the lives of those they have lost as well as a chance to raise much needed funds for the hospice, which costs £9,000 a day to run.
Russell Gay, Director of Urban Edge Architecture, comments: “As a local employer with staff drawn from all over the region, we have often been touched directly or indirectly by the care and support provided by Thorpe Hall Hospice. The decision to sponsor ‘Lights of Love’ was easily made and the least we can do to give something back to the community that surrounds our business. The volunteers and staff from the hospice are exceptional individuals, helping people through some of the most difficult times of their lives and they need all the support they can get. We’re expecting 600 plus people at the event and it will no doubt be an incredibly emotional and special evening; one which we are beyond pleased to be able to support.”
This year’s ‘Lights of Love’ concert will hear festive readings from the staff at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, singing from a local school choir and carols from the City of Peterborough Concert Band. Guests can look at Thorpe Hall’s remembrance books and place their dedications on the Lights of Love Christmas trees.
Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice ‘Lights of Love’ concert takes place on 16 December 2018. For further information or to make a donation, please visit the Sue Ryder website.
