Each year at St Raphael’s we celebrate the lives of those special people who have been important to us. We invite you to join together to remember them by dedicating a light on our Christmas tree.

This year, as we will be unable to come together in the usual way, we would like to send you a new St Raphael's star decoration for you to place on your own Christmas tree, or wherever you choose, over the festive season. Once we receive your dedication, we will personalise the star with your loved one’s name and post it to you.

Making a Donation

Please dedicate a light on the tree in memory of your loved one by donating whatever you can afford.

To support the appeal, click the dedicate button below, choose the amount you would like to give and leave a comment to specify the name(s) of those you wish to remember (this will be the name printed in the specially produced commemorative brochure and on your personalised star).

Only dedications made before 20th November can be printed in the brochure.

Light up a Life Celebration Streamed Live

Due to the ever changing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision not to host our usual celebration services this year. Our priority, as we are sure you will understand, is keeping our patients, relatives, staff, volunteers and you all as safe as possible.

Therefore, we would love to invite you to join us online to celebrate the lives of your loved ones and watch the St Raphael’s Christmas tree lights being switched on. This will be streamed live into the comfort of your own home via Zoom.

There is still a limited capacity as we are restricted by the number of people that can log on at one time. So registration is required using the button below. This is completely free and you will only need one registration per household. You will be sent the Zoom link and instructions in an email immediately after registering.

The online celebration event will take place on Sunday 6th December 2020 at 4:30pm.
