Light up a Life 

Each Christmas time, 10,000 lights shine brightly from the trees and buildings surrounding the Hospice, each representing a loved one.

Sadly, due to the pandemic and the restrictions that were put into place preventing crowds gathering, we had to cancel this year’s outdoor Light up a Life carol service.  Instead, we filmed a ‘Virtual Light up a Life service’ which is available for you to view below.

Light up a Life offers an uplifting and meaningful way to remember family and friends who are no longer with us whilst supporting the care we provide at Wirral Hospice St John’s. We would like to invite you to sponsor a light to remember your loved ones this Christmas.

Making a Light up a Life donation

If you would like to sponsor a light in memory of a loved one or loved ones, please sponsor a light online 

Or please call the Fundraising Office on 0151 343 0778 (Mon to Fri 9am-5pm). We kindly ask for a minimum donation of £5 per light.

For each light sponsored you will receive a personalised card and your loved one’s name will be printed in our online Books of Honour.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we will not be able to have printed Books of Honour on display this year, instead, our Books of Honour will be published online and will be available to order for a small donation. Ordered Books of Honour will be posted out the week after our virtual Light up a Life service.

We know that many supporters like to write messages for our memorial trees. If you would like to send us your messages for our memorial trees please download and print our message bauble template.

We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding this year and for your ongoing support in helping Wirral Hospice St John’s Light up a Life appeal, which helps us to provide our very special care for our patients and their families.

Business Lights

We would like to invite local businesses to support our Light up a Life campaign by sponsoring a business light for £50.00 or more. All businesses will be included in the Books of Honour and in the event programme. Your support will enable Wirral Hospice St John’s to continue to provide care free of charge for patients from the Wirral Community
