Remembering a loved one

Remembering a loved one at Christmas with Prospect Hospice

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 2018 Light up a Life service to remember all of those loved ones who cannot be with us at this very poignant time of year. It was our privilege to welcome you, and we hope you found some comfort in the evening.

Your support will light up the lives of more patients and their families

Our Light up a Life service is a very special occasion at which hundreds of people from across our community gather to remember people from our lives who sadly won’t be with us at Christmas.

There are traditional carols, readings and an especially poignant moment during the service where our
Christmas tree, which stands proudly at the front of the hospice over the festive period, is lit with each of the lights representing the life of someone special.

The generous donations received from our Light up a Life appeal go straight towards helping Prospect Hospice provide our specialised care and support for patients and their families when they seek our help. Last year, mostly through the support of our local community, we were able to care for and support more than 6,600 people, as patients or their family members.

Rach and I were born between two minutes of each other and we were so close. I miss her all the time, and especially at Christmas, which she always loved. Coming to Light up a Life means everything to us. It’s a chance for us to think about Rach around the time of her anniversary, and the music, the readings and the lovely atmosphere make it very special.
