We are asking you to dedicate a light in memory of someone special this Christmas.
“Christmas is a time for family. If you have lost someone, that’s when you notice the empty chair or the present you aren’t buying. Remembering that person with a light will help you through a difficult time of year, whilst enabling St Barnabas Hospice to care for those most vulnerable.”
This Christmas, we invite you to dedicate a light in memory of someone special. Your loved one’s light will join thousands of others on our beautiful Tree of Life, which stands proudly outside Lincoln Cathedral. The Tree will be illuminated on the 21st November after it has welcomed the Light up a Life flame at the end of the Torchlight Procession and it will continue to shine brightly over the festive period.
Our Light up a Life flame’s journey begins when it is ignited and blessed at our Inpatient Unit in Lincoln. On from here, the Light up a Life flame is carried and shared amongst all gathered at the Torchlight Procession, joining all in grief, love and hope. If you would like to join us in person and carry a torch to the Tree of Life for your loved one(s) you can register to attend below.
Please know that Light up a Life is for everyone who has experienced loss, not just those who have been affected by hospice care.
