Light Up a Life

LIGHT UP A LIFE 2018

Sunday 2nd December 2018, 4.30pm

 

Christmas is a special time of year, and for many, often a time to reflect and remember family and friends who are no longer with us.

St Raphael’s “Light up a Life” service is for everyone, not just those touched by St Raphael’s Hospice care. It is a chance to pause and remember the lives of our loved ones, in the company of others who understand.

We appreciate that Christmas can be a really emotional time for those who have lost loved ones. Our Light up a Life event is to help celebrate lives that have been lost.

Event details:

Our Light up a Life event will be taking place in the grounds of St Raphael’s Hospice on Sunday 2nd December at 4.30pm and will last approximately 45 minutes, (Gates will open at 3.30pm)

The service will include readings and Christmas carols sung by Wayne Woodward and we will make time within the service to reflect. Before, during and after the service we will also be serving mince pies and mulled wine.

At the service, we will offer you a candle to light in memory of your loved one and to make it even more personal and as a lasting tribute your loved one’s name can be written in our Light up a Life Service Commemorative Brochure as well as having a light dedicated to them on our Christmas tree. We will need to have received your dedication by Wednesday 14th November in order for it to be included in this year’s Commemorative brochure.

Due to the volume of attendees in previous years, we are asking if you could book your place for the event through the Eventbrite ticketing site. This will be a free ticket, however it will give us an indication of numbers for the evening.

Parking WILL NOT be available onsite due to the volume of attendees; however we will provide disabled parking. If you wish to have a disabled badge sent to you, please contact one of the fundraising team and we will be happy to send you one in the post.
