“St Paul’s looks beautiful, lit up with all the dedication lanterns for Light Up A Life. This very special evening of carols and remembrance offers families a unique way to remember the life of a loved one and to join with hundreds of others who want to share a special message for someone they love. Christmas can be a very difficult time for those who are bereaved, but Light Up A Life helps them keep the person close at this special time of year.”
– Karen Murphy, Chaplain at Weston Hospicecare
Christmas is a hard time for those missing a loved one. Their absence will be keenly felt, whether the loss was recent or several years ago. Taking part in our annual Light Up A Life appeal is a very special way to remember the life of someone close to you at Christmas whilst helping to provide care for another family facing the most difficult of times.
There are three main ways to show support throughout the appeal – Light a Lantern in dedication to a loved one, make an entry in the Book of Remembrance, or simply make a donation to help the hospice continue providing care and support to people and their families.
On Monday 10th December 2018 there will be two services to commemorate those who are special to us, at 3.30pm and 7.30pm in St. Paul’s Church in Weston-super-Mare. During the services, our chaplain, nurses and volunteers will read out the names of the dedicated lanterns representing those who are no longer with us. Relatives and friends are warmly invited to come forward and light a candle as the name of their loved one is read out.
For further information about the appeal and how you can get involved please call 01934 423960 or pick up a leaflet from any of our shops and at Jackson-Barstow House in Uphill.
