As the festive season approaches Prospect Hospice is holding its annual remembrance service, Light up a Life, for people to remember loved ones.
The service is open to anyone who is bereaved and would like to remember their loved one, irrespective of whether they used the services of Prospect Hospice.
As with last year the service will be online, so people can watch it from the comfort of their own homes.
It will be streamed live on You Tube on Sunday 12 December at 4.30pm and there will be a link on our website.
Traditional carols, readings, the lighting of the Light up a Life candle and the procession of lantern bearers will all feature in the service, along with the names of loved ones who will be remembered.
The hospice is asking for people who would like to submit dedications of loved ones to do so by Friday 26 November in order for them to be included in the service and the hospice’s book of remembrance. To make a dedication visit our website here
Sheryl Crouch, head of income at Prospect Hospice, said: “Our Light up a Life service is an important event for our local community. The festive period can often be a difficult time for people who are mourning the loss of loved ones.
“Light up a Life allows us to come together to reflect on the year and think about those people we have loved and lost.
“While we’d have liked to come together in person this year for the service, with the hospice still observing strict infection protocols, it seemed sensible to take it online again.
“We hope that as many people as possible will watch the service. Feedback from our supporters was that they very much enjoyed our online service last year and still shared in the same sense of remembrance as they do when they’re at the hospice.”
Joining the service is free but any donations made alongside dedications of loved ones would be greatly appreciated by the hospice to fund its work in providing end-of-life care to people and offer support to their loved ones.
