Pam Shepherd, Lights of Love organiser, said: "I recently spoke to a Buntingford lady who donates to the Lights of Love ceremony in memory of her partner of 20 years, and both her mother and father.
"Although we didn't look after her family members directly, she likes to donate to Isabel Hospice because it is such a local charity, directly benefiting local people.
