Light up a Life is for everyone

Our Light up a Life celebration is open to all – not just for patients and families who have been cared for by the hospice – but for everyone who wants to remember a loved one.

During the festive season, take time to remember and celebrate the special people who shine brightly in your heart. People who you love dearly and miss greatly, especially at Christmas-time.
