Remembering a loved one at Christmas with Prospect Hospice

Join our Light up a Life celebration and support vital hospice care in your community.

Our annual remembrance service, Light up a Life, is a time for us to collectively reflect on the year and think about those people who are no longer with us. For us to come together as a community and share the joy of their memory – and, importantly, to support each other as we mourn their loss.

For the first time since 2019, we are delighted to be able to hold this service in person once again. This year we will be holding two services at Christ Church, Old Town, Swindon, on Sunday 4 December at 1pm and 3.30pm*.

Below you will find a form for you to complete, where you can tell us which service you wish to attend and how many people will be joining you. You can also tell us the names of those you would like to remember, along with a space for a personal message. All messages and names will be collected together and printed in a special book of remembrance – which will be available to view at the service.

At the service we’ll also have memory stars available for you to write your own words of love and remembrance of your special loved one. All of the memory stars we receive will be displayed at the hospice in Wroughton.

Should you wish to join us, we kindly ask that you complete the below form no later than Monday 28 November, to ensure that you are part of this beautiful celebration.

*Please note that booking for these events has now closed.
