Light up a Life and remember someone special
With the festive season nearly upon us, Tynedale Hospice at Home has launched its annual Light up a Life campaign.
Light up a Life invites people to remember a loved one who has died by making a donation in their memory. In return for a donation – no matter how large or small – you will receive a card with your loved one’s name (s) inside and a memory star to write your own message on, this can be brought to one of the Hospice’s dedicated Light up a Life services or used to hang on your own Christmas tree at home.
Laura Elliott, Fundraising Manager for Tynedale Hospice at Home, said: “Christmas can be a particularly difficult time for people who have lost someone they love and Light up a Life is all about providing the opportunity for people to remember that special person or people.”
As part of the campaign, the Hospice is hosting three Light up a Life church services where there is an opportunity for quiet reflection to remember those who have died. These services are open to those of every faith, whether they have experienced the services of Tynedale Hospice at Home or not and you don’t have to have made a donation to attend.
The Light up a Life services are taking place at:
Hexham Abbey – Saturday 3 December at 4pm
St Mary’s Church, Ponteland – Sunday, 4 December at 4pm
