Light up a Life: At Home

Christmas is traditionally a time when we like to meet up and celebrate the good things in life, like family, friends, joy and hope.
For many of us it’s bittersweet as some of the people that we love most dearly have died and their absence is felt most keenly this time of year.
Each year we invite our communities to dedicate a light on the hospice Christmas tree in memory of those close to their hearts with a donation of whatever they can afford.

Welcome to Light up a Life: At Home

This year has been unlike any other and has had an impact on each of our lives. For every person, there will be a special memory we hold dear, a unique reason why we want to remember and celebrate the joy their lives brought.

Our short video has been made to aid you with your own Light up a Life service, at home. 

There are also a number of bereavement poems with voice over from Tom Reed  which are available on our YouTube Channel if you wish to listen to them please go to

There’s still time to join in with the Light up a Life event. If you would like to be part of this special event and remember a loved one or thank someone who has been special in your life, here is how you can take part:

•  This year for the first time, you can write a message and add photograph of your loved one on our virtual Christmas tree online. Your light will be seen by all acting as our beacon of light, bringing all wonderful memories together. You can make your online dedication by clicking here: 

•  Alternatively, for a £5 donation you can order a Home Pack directly from the Fundraising team by calling on 01745 585221 or email

Light up a Life has always been a special event for us and all of our supporters. However you decide to join us this year, it’s an opportunity for us to join together in spirit to light up our homes with our memories.
