A festive light to remember

All the families David Gallagher Funeral Directors has cared for in 2016 were remembered throughout the festive season. The Independent’s staff say they understand what a difficult time this may be for the loved ones left behind.

As in previous years, a Christmas tree has been placed at the Keighley funeral director’s Airedale House, each white light representing one of the deceased cared for throughout the year.

In their memory, the company donated £1,000 to its chosen charity for 2016, The Sunbeam Support Group Keighley & Craven, which offers support for anyone who has experienced a late miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death. It connects parents with other families and midwives who understand.

Adele Gallagher said: “We hope that our donation will help with the group’s important work within our community and wish them all the best in its growth and awareness.”

The company added that it knows the importance of the support families of young children require during their time of bereavement, and feel this added follow-on service will assist many families.
