Night to remember those we have lost
South Bucks Hospice’s Light Up a Life gathering allows people to light a candle and hang a written dedication on a Christmas tree in remembrance of loved ones. The event is being held from 5.30pm on Friday, December 11 at the hospice in Pusey House, Amersham Road, High Wycombe.
The Chiltern Music Academy Chamber Choir led by the Director of Music Tim Venvell will provide songs and hymns, and there will be some inspirational readings and poetry.
Chief Executive of the Hospice Jo Woolf said: “Once every year, we take some time out to gather with the families and friends of all those who have lost a loved one during the past few years. We come together to celebrate the lives of our loved ones, and to mourn their passing.
“If you have lost someone, we warmly invite you to join us on this special evening to light up a light in their memory.”
There is no admission fee but visitors are asked to make a donation of their choosing for each star on the tree they would like to dedicate.
Ms Woolf added: “We are privileged this year to have Pauline Quirke as a special guest.
Pauline also attended our garden party in the summer so we are very grateful for her support.
“Thisisaveryimportant annual event for us.
“Over the years, our dedicated staff and our remarkable team of volunteers have seen many patients come and then go.
“Yet none are forgotten, as each human is a truly unique light.
“Our patients leave us with wonderful memories and they inspired us with their courage, humour and compassion.
“We find that they have left a radiant light in our Hospice.”
