Our Tree of Life has a new home!

Due to the works currently taking place at Lincoln Cathedral, we’ve found a cosy new home for our Tree of Life for 2019.

This year our Tree of Life will be standing proudly outside The Lincoln Hotel. The hotel provides the perfect setting for our tree and is just next door to the cathedral.

The Torchlight Procession is a unique and iconic celebration and an opportunity for families and friends to join us in remembering the people that we love.

The procession commences at Clayton’s Sports Ground, we then follow the pipe band for a moment’s reflection outside the Hospice and on to The Lincoln Hotel, where the Tree of Life will be illuminated for the whole community to see.

Every year local people have the chance to dedicate a light(s) in remembrance of someone special on our trees of life across Lincolnshire.

Light up a Life is free and open to everyone, not just those touched by hospice care.

Messages of Love

Messages of Love allow the public to write a personal message of love that can be placed around our Tree of Life at The Lincoln Hotel following the procession. If you have not already received one, these will be available on the night either at Claytons Sports Ground or after the service at the hotel.
