Lights for Love
Dedicate a Light this Christmas to Someone Special
The Lights for Love Appeal will open again in September 2019.
Join us this Christmas to celebrate the lives of those who are no longer with us.
Every year, just before Christmas our Lights for Love Appeal provides a wonderful opportunity to come together and remember loved ones. It’s a chance to reflect and celebrate time spent together, leave a dedication to your loved one and make a donation to support the hospice. The events focus on remembrance, with readings, hymns, carols and refreshments afterwards.
Christmas trees will be illuminated by hundreds of tiny white lights at three separate venues. Each light will symbolise the love for someone special, and stars will be available that can be personalised and hung on the trees.
Many people come because they were supported by care from The Wisdom Hospice, but you don’t need to have any connection to the hospice to attend. Everyone, of any age, is welcome to join us.
Every dedication we receive will be included in our Book of Remembrance, which will be displayed at each service and also at the Hospice throughout the whole of December. A special card will be sent for you to keep.
Your donation will help us to continue to care for future patients and their families throughout the year, not just at Christmas.
Please note the deadline for dedications for our Book of Remembrance is Friday 22nd November at 9am. After this, late entries will be inserted at the back of the book.
