Light up the Mary Potter Loving Tree with your love this Christmas
The Lighting of the Loving Tree Ceremony video will be available on this webpage after
8 December 2021.
Proudly supported by
The Loving Tree stands at the entrance to Mary Potter Hospice and in December every year, it is lit up for 40 nights with thousands of twinkling lights as a symbol of love for those we wish to remember with love at Christmas.
You can give the most precious gift by dedicating a light on our Loving Tree. It is a beautiful way to celebrate a life of someone special at this time of year.
Not only will you shine a light on someone you love, but your gift will also support one of the many patients and families who will spend their Christmas in our care.
We would be so honoured to have your loved one remembered this year.
There are two ways you can donate to the Loving Tree.
Dedicate a light on the Mary Potter Loving Tree to honour someone you love or make a gift from your heart this Christmas
Dedicate a light
When you dedicate a light on the Mary Potter Loving Tree to remember someone you love, we will send you a heart with your loved one's name on it to hang on your own tree and display another heart with their name to our Loving Tree outside Mary Potter Hospice. Their name will also be included in an honour roll on our Lighting of the Loving Tree ceremony video, if you make your gift before 26 November 2021.
Click on the button above to dedicate a light or call us on 08 8239 0119 to dedicate a light over the phone.
Make a gift from your heart
You can make a once-off tax-deductible donation to support the hundreds of patients and their families in our care at Christmas time.
We will send you a heart to hang on your own Christmas tree that recognises the love you have for Mary Potter at this special time of year.
