Remember a loved one
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.
