The largest lantern release ever held in Cayman happened at public beach last night (Sep 28).

The Cayman Hospice Centre launched the event to raise funds for terminally ill patients to continue having free medical care, counselling and other services provided by the centre.

Director Of Operations and Development Danielle Coleman said the support is much-needed as it costs almost 2-thousand dollars a day to run the Hospice Care Centre.

“It costs 1800 dollars a day to operate funds to run Hospice so we have nine specialised staff of Hospice nurses they’re all trained and we have two locations a patient unit and an administrative unit so obviously the funds are really needed because everything is free,” Ms.Coleman said.

Medical Director at the Hospice Care Virginia Hobday said the lantern release is a great way for family members and relatives to remember loved-ones who have passed on from and she added the lanterns are completely non-toxic and biodegradable.
