Gallaghers’ festive light to remember
As 2020 was such an unprecedented year, Yorkshire-based David Gallagher and his wife Adele thought it fitting that David Gallagher Funeral Directors’ chosen charity for the year would benefit local key workers who have provided dedicated care during such difficult times.
To honour all of the families cared for by David, Adele and their team throughout 2020, a Christmas tree was placed in their premises at Airedale House in Keiley, West Yorkshire, with each white light representing a deceased person for whom they have cared throughout the year.
In their memory, David and Adele donated £2,000 to the nearby Airedale Hospital and Community Charity, the official charity of Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, whose aim is to support employee wellbeing and improve the experience of its patients.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, they have been able to support employees quickly and effectively in various ways – providing additional refreshments to prevent dehydration, improving health and morale, or responding to the specific needs of a team or individuals.
Adele Gallagher said: “We have all felt the pressure of the pandemic during 2020 and our amazing team has worked tirelessly in supporting all of our clients. NHS staff have proved invaluable in steering us all through such difficult times, and we hope that our donation will go a small way in saying thank you to them from our team and all of our clients.”Tags: Adele Gallagher, Airedale, charity, Christmas, community, David Gallagher, hospital
