Light up a Life

With the festive season approaching Tynedale Hospice at Home is inviting people to celebrate the memory of a loved one and support its vital work through its Light up a Life campaign with a special service at Hexham Abbey.

Light up a Life invites people to remember a loved one who has died by making a donation in their memory.  In return for a donation – no matter how large or small – you will receive a card with your loved one’s name inside and a memory star to write your own message on.  This can be brought to one of the Hospice’s three dedicated Light up a Life services or can be used to hang on your own Christmas tree at home. Each donation represents a light on our remembrance tree and the remembrance tree of lights is turned on at each service.

Christmas can be a particularly difficult and poignant time for people who have lost someone they love and Light up a Life is all about providing the opportunity for people to remember them. The service at the Abbey is an opportunity for quiet reflection to remember those who have died.  These services are family-friendly and are open to everyone of all faiths, whether you have experienced the services of Tynedale Hospice at Home or not and you don’t have to have made a donation to attend.

All funds raised will support the work of Tynedale Hospice at Home which provides palliative nursing care to people in their own homes, Family Support Services and a Hospital Transport Service to people living in Tynedale, West Northumberland, Ponteland and the surrounding areas.
