The community is invited to join together at Peace Hospice Care’s annual Lights of Love commemoration ceremony on Tuesday 10 December outside Watford Town Hall from 7pm. The event is for everyone and includes carols, readings and the chance to dedicate a light as the Lights of Love tree is switched on.
This year, the Lights of Love tree will be switched on by Jason Angold, in memory of his late wife, Pauline, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. In 2018, Pauline came to the Hospice. Jason said: “Pauline arrived at the Inpatient Unit and immediately we all felt cared for and understood. Nothing was too much to ask. As soon as you walk through the door, the privacy offered and the environment – it felt like an extended family, like people really cared – and I felt cared for too. It’s difficult to put into words. The experience was the best it could have been – I couldn’t fault it. To this day, I wish we’d been involved with the Hospice sooner.”
