Light Up a Life 2023

Remember someone you love this Christmas

Christmas is a time when we remember our loved ones, and Light up a Life provides an opportunity for families and friends to remember those no longer with us. 

Every single donation, no matter how big or small, helps to make a huge difference to patients and their families.

Gifts between £5 and £29 qualify for a pin badge. Gifts between £30 and £59 qualify for a snowflake tree ornament. Gifts between £60 and £99 qualify for a tea light ornament. Gifts of £100 plus qualify for a named star in the night sky.

You will also receive a personal Light up a Life card bearing your loved one(s) name.

The tea light ornament will be on display at the Hospice, and available for collection after the Hospice service of remembrance.

*Whilst there is no extra charge for home packs, please do consider adding a little extra to your donation to cover the cost of posting these out to you.


Your gift will not only Light up the Life of your loved one, it will help care for our patients and their loved ones this Christmas. 

This year, Brenda Whitehouse and her son Phillip are supporting Light up a Life in memory of David Whitehouse; a beloved husband and father, as way of saying thank you to the Hospice for the care and love provided to the family.

Brenda tells everyone, “I certainly couldn’t have cared for David like they did if he was at home. They really were my lifeline. They made me a very happy lady during such a sad time.”
