East Midlands Airport control tower lit up with Light Up a Life logo

EAST Midlands Airport has once again lit up its air traffic control tower in support of our Treetops Hospice Light up a Life appeal.

The annual Light up a Life appeal encourages people to share a memory of a loved one on the hospice Christmas tree and make a donation to Treetops.

From now until 28 November, passengers travelling to and from the Castle Donington airport will see the Light up a Life logo projected onto the iconic 51-meter-high tower.
Steve Griffiths, East Midlands Airport’s Managing Director, said:
Supporting our local community is really important to us so we’re very pleased to once again promote the Treetops Hospice Light up a Life appeal.
“We hope by lighting up the air traffic control tower, it will encourage people to take part in Light up a Life, to share their memories this Christmas, and donate to this worthwhile local charity.”

Light up a Life is special to Treetops

Treetops Chief Executive, Julie Heath, said:
“We’re very grateful to East Midlands Airport for their continued support.

“Light up a Life is very special to Treetops, when hundreds of people join us in remembering their loved ones on our Light up a Life Tree. It’s really very moving to see all the photos and read the memories being shared.
Proceeds from Light up a Life go towards helping us continue to care for local patients with life-limiting conditions, those who’ve been bereaved, and their families.”
