Re­mem­ber a loved one

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

A HOSPICE is of­fer­ing be­reaved peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to re­mem­ber loved ones at its an­nual Light up a Life ser­vices this fes­tive sea­son.

Be­reaved fam­i­lies of­ten find com­fort in a chance to re­mem­ber a loved one and this year Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care is of­fer­ing a choice of ways to do this.

Dur­ing the Light up a Life ser­vices there will be time for quiet re­flec­tion and a chance to light a can­dle in mem­ory of loved ones. There is also the op­por­tu­nity to ded­i­cate a light on the spe­cial Christ­mas trees at the ser­vices in mem­ory of friends or rel­a­tives.

While in­di­vid­ual lights are not named, once switched on, usu­ally as part of the ser­vice, the lights shine on in mem­ory through­out the Christ­mas pe­riod.

Com­mu­nity fundrais­ing man­ager at Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care Penny Cross­well said: “At­tend­ing a Light up a Life ser­vice can help bring com­fort at what for many can be a very dif­fi­cult time of year.”

Light up a Life pin badges will also be avail­able at ev­ery ser­vice and in hospice shops for a sug­gested do­na­tion of £2.
