Light Up A Life Appeal: Your loved ones remembered

editorial image
Have your say

YEP readers can sponsor a light on a Christmas tree in memory of absent loved ones at a carol service in The Light shopping centre on December 12.

All donations go to the Half & Half Appeal for Wheatfields and St Gemma’s Hospices and will be acknowledged in the YEP each Saturday running up to the service.

Names of loved ones will be listed on an honours board in the Courtyard at The Light from December 12 until the end of the Christmas period.

Send your donation to: The Editor’s Secretary, Yorkshire Evening Post, Yorkshire Evening Post, No.1 Leeds, 26 Whitehall Road, Leeds LS12 1BE.

Make cheques payable to YEP Half & Half Appeal. Donations must be received no later than December 7 for names to be entered on the honour board.

Tributes can be included in the Light Up A Life column but not the roll of honour. Please keep all tributes to less than 30 words. Donations to Half & Half Appeal can be Gift Aided.

This allows the hospices to claim 25p in the pound if you pay income tax in this country.

Attach a note stating your name and address and make the declaration that you pay income tax in this country, equal to the amount you are donating. Send that with your donation to the Light Up A Life Appeal and we will do the rest.
