Light Up a Life

The loss of a loved one can be particularly poignant in the days and weeks before Christmas and the New Year. Our Light Up a Life services are an uplifting way to come together with your friends and family to remember someone special. Please join us at one of our services. They are open to everyone, not just those touched by hospice care.

Dedicate a light  

This is a positive way of remembering someone special, knowing their light is bringing comfort and pleasure to others as well as to you. The light that you sponsor will be one of the lights that shines on Christmas trees at our ceremonies throughout November and December. Make your dedication and donation of your choice ​here.

Each dedication will be acknowledged with a commemorative dedication card (by post or email) that is yours to keep or pass on to friends and family if you wish.
