Light up a Life – Sunday 11th December

Wirral Hospice St John’s will be lighting up the hospice gardens with 10,000 beautiful lights this December. Light up a Life started in 1996 and has been raising much-needed funds for the Hospice ever since. This year we are celebrating 26 years of Light up a Life.

On Sunday 11th December, we will return to holding an in-person Light up a Life service where we invite all our supporters to come together in our hospice gardens for our annual Switch-On Service. The lights will be switched on at 5.30 and our Books of Honour will again be available to view.

Our Light up a Life service will also be recorded and will be available to view after the service, the video will be posted on this page and will be available on our YouTube channel.

We would also like to invite you and your family to come and spend a short time walking under the beautiful lights to remember and celebrate the lives of your loved ones from Monday 12th December.

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.

More than ever, the hospice needs your support. For each light sponsored a personalised Light up a Life card will be printed and your loved one’s names will be published in the hospice online Books of Honour, a special personal copy of the Book of Honour will be available for pre-order and keepsake tree decorations are available.

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 9 am-5 pm). We kindly ask for a minimum donation of £5 per light.

You will also have the opportunity to pre-order your own copy for a donation of £5.00. Pre-ordered Books of Honour will be posted in the weeks following Light up a Life.

We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding over the last couple of years 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.
