Light Up a Life

What is Light up a Life?

Rennie Grove’s Light up a Life services are a wonderful uplifting way to come together with your friends and family to remember someone special.  The services are open to anyone in our community, not just people whose loved one was cared for by Rennie Grove.

Sponsor a light  

Sponsor a light on one of our Christmas trees to shine in memory of a loved one at our Light up a Life services in the local area. Dedicating a light is a positive way of remembering someone special, knowing their light is bringing comfort to others as well as to you. Sponsor a light ​here.

Everyone who makes and dedication and sponsors a light in memory of a loved one, will be sent a beautiful Light up a Life card by post. The card includes a silver star to hang on your Christmas tree with your own special message.
