APN 66 - 16/21: NI Hospice Lights to Remember Appeal / BIC Summit Meeting / APG on Domestic Violence

NI Hospice Lights to Remember Appeal

Northern Ireland Hospice's Lights to Remember campaign was established almost 30 years ago. The aim of the appeal is to support bereaved families at Christmas time as well as helping to secure funds for hospice care the following year. The tree positioned in the front of Stormont Buildings has been dedicated to the NI Hospice in support of this campaign.

Representatives from the NI Hospice will be in the Great Hall on Tuesday 6 December 2016 from 10.00am-11.00am. Members will have an opportunity to meet with representatives during their visit to Parliament Buildings and have a photograph taken in support of this appeal.
