Light Up a Life on Sunday 24 November
Thursday 14th November 2019
St. Vincent's Hospice
St. Vincent’s Hospice invite you to join them at 4.30pm on Sunday 24 November for their annual Light Up a Life event.
The dedications service begins with at Corseford School at 4.30pm for a candlelit procession along the footpath up to the Hospice, where they will begin their dedication service and light the Christmas tree in memory of those who have been loved in the community.
Commenting on Light Up a Life Spiritual Care Co-ordinator for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Catherine McGrath said: “Christmas is a time of celebration and sharing, but we know it can also be difficult, especially if you have lost a loved one. Light Up a Life is a way to celebrate their life, by dedicating one of the hundreds of lights on our tree, before coming together at the Hospice for an evening of carols, readings, mince pies and hot drinks.
“This is an incredibly special event for so many people, for so many different reasons. For some, it brings a sense of peace and joy to be surrounded by others who understand what you are going through. For others, it provides an opportunity to take a moment to reflect on those they have lost. For all, it’s a great way to kick off the Christmas season and help a good cause!”
The annual campaign runs all through the holiday season, giving people the chance to come together, share stories, remember those who have been lost and give the gift of specialist, compassionate care to patients and families who need it most.

Catherine added: “Our dedication event will begin at 4.30pm at the Corseford School, with a candlelit procession along our footpath, ending in the Hospice Courtyard. So wrap up warm and join us as hundreds of lights are lit to shine out this Christmas in memory of those being honoured.”
