IT IS a touching tribute to a loved one – and it helps raise vital funds for a cause which means so much to many.

The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice’s annual Light Up A Life appeal, supported by the Evening Times, gives people the chance to remember loved ones who have died.

Hundreds of families add a light to the Christmas tree at the hospice in Carlton Place, or create a ‘virtual’ light on the website, making a donation at the same time.

Last year the appeal raised more than £28,000.

Lisa McDougall, from Rutherglen, and her family are remembering her grandfather Malcolm Robb who died at the hospice in August 2011.

Former electrician Malcolm, who lived in Kinning Park, found great comfort and support from the dedicated team, as Lisa explains.

“My grandad was very upbeat during his time at the hospice,” she smiles. “He loved golf and would always talk about going for a round or two.”

“He also loved music – especially singers like Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble - and often asked the nurses to turn up the radio. He loved the complementary therapies too, they always made him feel a bit better.”

She adds: “The hospice was a huge support to my grandad, the staff were all amazing. The chaplain, Leslie Edge spent a lot of time with him.”

Lisa, who is the hospice’s reception services co-ordinator, and her family set up a tribute fund in memory of Malcolm.

She says: “Light Up a Life gives people the opportunity to remember the lives of our loved ones. It’s a lovely way to celebrate their life.”

The services to mark this year’s appeal took place recently at St Andrew’s Cathedral, followed by the tree light switch-on at the hospice. The names of those remembered were included in a special order of service and are printed below.
