Send a Lovelight and support The Yard
Let your friends know just how important they are to you whilst raising funds for The Yard by sending a Lovelight from your smart phone or via the web. Lovelights cost just £1 and 33 pence of that is donated directly to The Yard. Sending a Lovelight is the latest eco-friendly way to tell your friends and loved ones just how you feel.
There are 6 animated designs to choose from including a 'disco theme', 'exploding fireworks' and 'romantic pandas'. Each lovelight can be sent either from a smartphone or from spreadthelovelight.com with the cost billed directly to your mobile phone. You can also include a personal message with each Lovelight. Downloading takes seconds and your Lovelight can be opened as many times as wished and saved onto your smartphone or email.
Don't just take our word for it, see for yourself at www.spreadthelovelight.com . It is so easy, takes two minutes to do and raises vital funds for The Yard.
