We are pleased to announce our Light Up a Life Services for 2023. This year we are thrilled to be hosting the first Light Up a Life service at the hospice as well as numerous satellite services within our local community. For more information on how to dedicate a light please see our Light Up a Life page.
Light Up a Life is a special time for families and friends to join together and remember loved ones at such a difficult time of year. You are able to celebrate the life of someone special this Christmas by dedicating a light on our remembrance tree and donating to St Kentigern Hospice. Every dedication made before Tuesday 28th November will also be added to our book of remembrance both as an online pdf and book displayed in the hospice and at St Asaph Cathedral. If you have somebody you wish to remember this Christmas, a Light Up a Life star is a beautiful way to honour their memory.

Dedicate a light
This year our Remembrance Tree will stand proudly outside the hospice entrance and will be the center of our Light Up a Life service on November 30th. We will stand together under the Remembrance Tree during the powerful moment when the lights are switched on, each light symboling the life of a loved one who is no longer with us.
You are able to celebrate the life of someone special this Christmas by dedicating a light on our remembrance tree and donating to St Kentigern Hospice.
