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.”
We are asking you to dedicate a light in memory of someone special this Christmas time. Your loved one’s light will join thousands of others on our beautiful Tree of Life which stands proudly outside Lincoln Cathedral each year.
We are honoured to be able to bring our supporters together with one extra special Light up a Life celebration this year. Join us online on Tuesday 23rd November at 7pm as we host a virtual Light up a Life service live from our website. It will feature touching readings, music and time for quiet reflection. We will also light candles in remembrance of our loved ones and invite you to do the same at home.
For those of you wanting to do something in person to remember their loved one, we are delighted to let you know that the Torchlight Procession is back for 2021! Join hundreds of others on Tuesday 23rd November as we walk to the Cathedral carrying flaming torches in memory of loved ones. If you plan to join us for this event, please visit StBarnabasHospice.co.uk/events/torchlight to register.
Light up a Life is a unique celebration. It is a special time for families and friends to join together and remember loved ones at such a difficult time of year.
Please remember that Light up a Life is for everyone who has experienced loss, not just those who have been affected by hospice care.
