Shine a light for a loved one

Dedicate a light this Christmas in memory of a special person you love and miss.

Throughout the festive season, your light will shine brightly on Rowcroft’s glorious ‘Tree of Light’ as a poignant way of honouring and celebrating their life. Light up a Life is open to all – not just patients and families who have been cared for by the hospice – but for everyone who wants to remember a loved one.

Dedicate a Light to celebrate a loved one

To dedicate a light on our Tree of Light in memory of someone you love, please make a donation of your choice.

If you make a dedication before the end of November 2021, the name(s) of your loved one(s) will also be inscribed into our online Book of Light if you so wish, and will appear in a special edition of Torbay Weekly on Thursday 16 December.

You can view the Tree of Light in our wonderful online celebration on Sunday 5 December (here on this website). The special celebration will include heart-warming readings and poems, soothing soft music and quiet time for reflection.

At any point during the festive season, we’d love you to visit our ‘Tree of Light’ in our beautiful gardens in Torquay. Take time to wander through the green and tranquil gardens, or simply sit and reflect.

Shine a light for others this Christmas

By making a donation, you will shine a light for others, helping Rowcroft to provide vital care and support to local families who are facing the hardest days times imaginable this Christmas.

“Your dedication enables you to celebrate the life of a loved one, and at the same time to make a real difference to the lives of so many patients and families needing Rowcroft’s expert care and support this Christmas,” says Rebecca Cogger, Rowcroft’s In Memory Giving and Legacy Manager. “Every kind donation will be used to care for people at home in their last two weeks of life, helping families to make the most of precious moments and enabling patients to achieve their final wish to be at home when they die.”
