Light up a Life
Light up a Life is a special campaign that brings everyone together to remember their loved ones at Christmas time. Each Christmas, 10,000 lights shine brightly from the trees and buildings surrounding the Hospice, each light representing a loved one. We hold a Light up a Life carol service in early December where we gather in the hospice gardens and sing carols, listen to readings and switch on our Christmas lights. Following the switch on service, our Lights are illuminated each evening and early morning up to Christmas and then stay on until the twelfth night. If you would like to dedicate a light in memory of a loved one please call 0151 343 0778 or make a Light up a Life donation online
