Each year, we host a variety of different events to help raise funds for the hospice. By tapping into the support of local businesses, who help support our events through sponsorship, we’re able to create fun, engaging ways for our local community to support the hospice.
We have several different events that are held throughout the year. To find out more about each event, click on the buttons below.
Light Up a Life
Monday 10th December 2018
Our annual Light Up a Life appeal is an opportunity for us to remember loved ones who are no longer with us. It’s a special and emotional evening of remembrance which also raises money for Weston Hospicecare, meaning we can continue to support those with life-limiting illnesses and their family and friends.

On your return, you will be welcomed back with a pasty and pint as you enjoy England’s penultimate Six Nations game against Italy.
