Mayor Lights up a Life

The Mayor of Driffield, Councillor Mrs Joan Cooper, will perform the official switch-on ceremony for this year’s Saint Catherine’s Hospice Tree of Lights on Monday December 3.

The ceremony will take place at 6.15pm outside the Buffers Restaurant at the Railway Station.

Jane Richardson Fundraiser said: “Everyone is most welcome to attend the service and the hospice would like to thank all those who have contributed in any way to this Appeal which we hope will raise over £40,000 for patient care”

Mrs Diane Flint, a Trustee of Saint Catherine’s Hospice will lead the service, Reverend Robert Amos will bless the tree and the service of carols and prayers will be accompanied by the East Riding Youth Band.

The Christmas tree, which is decorated with 1000 lights, has been kindly donated by the Lowthorpe Estate.

The names of all those who have been remembered are entered into a Book of Memories, which will be available for viewing on the evening of December 3 and then at the Driffield Hospice shop until January 5. After the service refreshments of coffee and mince pies will be served by The Buffers Restaurant.

To have a light shine on the hospice tree for your loved one, please complete a leaflet available from the Hospice shop or Buffers Restaurant or alternatively phone 01723 378406.
