This Christmas. we invite you to honour the special people in your hearts, in your thoughts, or in your memories by dedicating a light to them on our tree of light. Dedicate one of our Christmas lights to a loved one and see it sparkle.

The Tree of Light was lit for the very first time at Borders General Hospital on Tuesday 6th December.  Each light represents a dedication made in honour of a loved one.  So far close to 200 lights are twinkling each night and with your help we have raised more than £1500.
