Nearly time to Light up a Life
WOULD you like to Light up a Life this Christmas? During the first week of October, we always launch our Light up a Life appeal, which runs right up to our Light up a Life service and Christmas light switch-on at 4pm on Sunday, December 9.
Our Light up a Life service is one of our most popular events and is a beautiful and very festive occasion.
It’s all about remembrance and celebration at a very special time of year and we hope you will join us to dedicate a light on our 25ft Christmas tree, or leave a memory heart on our new ornamental tree.
Last year, Gemma Waite and her children went along to Light up a Life for the first time to remember Gemma’s father.
She said: “We wanted to come to remember my dad and just be together.”
Kate and Carol have been best friends for over 20 years.
They wanted to go to Light up a Life to remember their parents as well as other loved ones.
Kate said: “It’s the first time we have been, although I’ve wanted to come for many years.
“It’s a wonderful way to remember and think about our loved ones at this time of year.
“It was a very special to both of us as we were remembering our parents but also my parentsin-law and Carol’s brother who died nine years ago.”
Light up a Life is a wonderful way to think about our family and friends at Christmas time, whether they are no longer with us or are just a long way away.
