Never Forgotten Christmas Appeal 2023

An image for Irish Hospice Foundation's Never Forgotten Christmas Appeal with a photo of a married couple, Gina and Wally. There is a quote from Gina that says, "It's not easy living without you. I miss your love. I miss your presence. I just miss you."

You don’t always know it’s your last Christmas together. But Wally knew. And so did Gina —

“You didn’t feel well enough to join us for dinner. You came down for dessert with your dickie bow on your pyjamas, but declined to take your usual place at the table… You were preparing us for Christmases without you.”

Wally died not long after. He was the love of Gina’s life. He always will be.

Never Forgotten… Forever Loved.

Will you share one of the millions of memories you carry in your heart of the person you’re missing this Christmas, and remember them with a special gift today?

The very act of writing down a memory, a moment, a message – it’s these little acts of love that keep our loved ones alive.

Your message will be hand-written into our Book of Remembrance 2024.

Thank you for giving.
