Light Up A Life

Christmas is a time of celebration and sharing but it can also be a difficult time of year if we have lost someone special.

Our Light Up A Life service takes place in December.  It is a very special non-denominational service and an opportunity to celebrate and remember the lives of those we have lost.  It consists of carols, readings and songs and ends with the switching on of the remembrance lights on our beautiful Christmas tree at the Hospice.  We are proud to have the support of local community groups, individuals and schools who come along to provide the music and perform the readings.  This is a very upbeat event and a great favourite in the Hospice calendar.

The lights on the tree burn brightly until 12th night and alongside them are the glo-sticks hung there by young people at the service.  We also have a limited number of individual Christmas trees sponsored by companies, individuals and families which also remain lit until 12th night.

The service is accompanied by an appeal which allows people to show support in memory of loved ones and to have their names recorded in our Book of Remembrance.  This Book is kept on display in the Hospice reception throughout the year for donors to view and visit as they wish.  Not only are our donors comforted by remembering loved ones but they also know that their donations will allow Halton Haven Hospice to continue caring for others during the coming year.

The service is open to everyone whether they have lost loved ones at the Hospice or not.  The evening is one of celebration and both before and after the service refreshments and stalls are available.  A variety of Christmas treats and Christmas gifts are on sale and there is also the opportunity to meet Hospice staff and volunteers.  The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and we hope to see you joining us this year.

Please watch our social media, the local press and this website for further details.  You can also sign up to our newsletter HERE to be kept updated of this and other events.
