Light up a Life


Remember someone special this Christmas
At Christmas we often wish to remember those who are special to us. We invite you to honour a loved one who may have passed away or be absent during the Christmas season 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. These will be sent out from mid November onwards.
Each dedication will also appear in the book of Christmas Blessings, which will be available to view at the Cathedral and in the hospice chapel until Twelfth Night. The book of Christmas Blessings will be updated throughout the appeal. You are welcome to call in to view the Book at the Cathedral or the hospice during normal visiting times.
We also offer a Home Pack for people who are unable to attend one of the services. You can order this when you make your dedication(s).
This year we'll be holding special dedication services at Wakefield Cathedral. There will also be an outdoor service in the hospice gardens. During each service, the Tree of Lights will be lit with hundreds of white lights, all shining for loved ones being remembered at Christmas. We hope you can join us at one of these special services to remember your loved ones.
Details of our 2018 services will be released later this year.
Please note that services are ticketed. Tickets are issued on a 'first come, first served' basis. Tickets and dedication cards will be sent out from mid November onwards.
Thank you so much for supporting the Light up a Life appeal.
