"Remember a loved one this Christmas."

Every year local people are invited to dedicate a light(s) to someone special on Trees of Life across Lincolnshire at Christmas time. Around 2,000 lights shine each year in memory of loved ones and the donations help to provide care for local patients and families.

Margaret, Volunteer and Supporter of St Barnabas said;

“I have always known about Light up a Life and the Torchlight Procession, but after losing John they took on a whole new meaning for me. I now donate to shine a light in John’s memory at Christmas – the time of the year when family means the most to me. I also like to attend the Light up a Life church celebration in Lincoln with my family. We take so much comfort from attending the celebration and having our light, and it gives us the time and space to think about our special memories with John.”

Light up a Life celebrations

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is honoured to host nine Light up a Life events this year. The celebrations begin with the Torchlight Procession on Tuesday 26th November with further local celebrations throughout December. These unique celebrations are a special time for families and friends to join us in remembering the people that we love, who are no longer with us.

Each event will feature touching readings, music and time for quiet reflection; we will also light candles in remembrance of our loved ones.

Each Light up a Life celebration lasts around 1 – 1.5 hours. All events are free to attend and open to all regardless of faith.
