Light up a Life


Remember someone special this Christmas

At Christmas we often wish to remember those who are special to us.  Wakefield Hospice invites you to honour a loved one who may have passed away or be absent during the Christmas season.

You can celebrate the memory of your loved ones or honour someone special in your life by sponsoring a light on the Tree of Lights, which will be illuminated at our special dedication services.

For each dedication you make, we will send you a personalised Light up a Life card and we will add each name to the book of Christmas Blessings, which will be available to view at the cathedral and in the hospice chapel where it will remain until Twelfth Night. The book of Christmas Blessings will be updated throughout the appeal and additional names can be added until 1 January.   

This year we'll be holding special dedication services at Wakefield Cathedral, St Peter & St Paul in Sandal, Trinity Church in Ossett, and West Wakefield Methodist Church in Thornes. There will also be an outdoor service in the hospice gardens.  We do hope that you will join us at one of these special services to remember your loved ones.
