We know how much Light up a Life means to so many families across Wirral, to our lights shining brightly throughout December in remembrance and celebration of those we hold dear in our hearts. If you would like to sponsor a light please fill in the online form below. We kindly ask for a minimum donation of £5 per light. Or please call the Fundraising Office on 0151 343 0778 (Mon to Fri 9am-5pm).
All donations will receive a Light up a Life card displaying your loved one’s name and short message. Names will be added to our Books of Honour and digital Books of Honour.
