Light up a Life


Remember someone special this Christmas
This Christmas we invite you to remember a loved one by dedicating a light on the Tree of Lights. The Tree will be lit with hundreds of white lights shining for loved ones being remembered. You’ll receive a personalised Light up a Life card showing your dedication, and your donation will help care for seriously ill people and their families. There’s no minimum donation and anyone can dedicate a light – you don’t need to have a connection to the hospice.

The name of each person being remembered will appear in the Book of Blessings which will be displayed at the hospice and cathedral until Twelfth Night. Copies of the Book of Blessings will be available and will be sent by post. Please note that your Book of Blessings may arrive separately from your Home Pack.

Please ensure we receive your dedication by 30 November for it to appear in the copy of the Book of Blessings. Dedications also need to be received at the hospice by that date to appear in alphabetical order in the Book of Blessings displayed at the hospice and cathedral. After that date, any further dedications will appear in the back of the Book of Blessings at the hospice and cathedral. 
You can also receive a Home Pack. This usually includes an Order of Service, Light up a Life badge, candle, prayer and readings for you to participate in the Light up a Life service at home. We'll update supporters nearer the time about the format of this year's service and the contents of this year's Home Pack. To stay updated about our plans for Light up a Life 2020 please ensure we have your communication preferences by completing our online form or by calling us on 01924 331401.

Thank you for supporting the Light up a Life appeal. Your donation will help provide the highest quality care for people with life-limiting illness. With your help, the hospice will care for around 350 inpatient admissions and 3,800 day therapy attendances next year. Three quarters of the hospice’s funding comes from charitable sources and these services are only available because of your generosity. Last year the Light up a Life appeal raised £34,636 which helped to pay for 1,385 hours of nursing care.
Our Light up a Life appeal is kindly supported by Arriva Yorkshire Ltd
