Nearly time to Light up a Life

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

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.
