For anyone who misses someone special at this time of year
You are invited to celebrate the memory of your loved one this festive season, and support local people for whom this may be their last Christmas.
Book of Remembrance
As we are unable to allow our Book of Remembrance at Deer Park to be viewed this year, we have created an online version for you to browse in the comfort and safety of your own homes. Names have been added in alphabetical order of 'first names' as received, for ease. You're able to view your loved ones name in the book by clicking here.
We really hope our live Light up a Life broadcast on 11th December brought you some comfort and repose to remember your loved ones at a time when we can't get together. This broadcast can still be viewed below:
"It was a devastating blow for us all when Mum was diagnosed with cancer. It really felt like our whole world had been turned upside down. During Mum's treatments, hospice nurses supported both Mum and Dad and really helped them both through some very dark days. I do not know what we would have all done without the care and compassion of our hospice Team, they were a light in the dark for us all." Ali, from Barnstaple
This time of year is a special and poignant time to remember loved ones who are no longer with us. Light Up A Life gives you the opportunity to remember someone special this Christmas. They do not have to have been cared for by the hospice for you to make a dedication in their honour.
Your donation will also make a difference to local people who may be facing their last Christmas. However, thanks to your support, they can enjoy Christmas with the warmth and comfort that hospice care offers, knowing their own loved ones will be supported in the future too. Please help to support those in you community, maybe your own neighbour, colleague, friend or family member.
How to get involved:
Donate online to our Tree of Remembrance
Our online Tree of Remembrance allows you to gift a star on our Christmas tree, to honour your loved one's memory. You will be able to include a message for them and a photo if you would like. We encourage you to share this with your friends and family so they may be part of the online Light Up A Life experience with you - they will also be able to make a donation to your star, should they wish to.
Please visit www.treeofremembrance.co.uk to go to our virtual Christmas tree, which will be available to view throughout December and into the New Year
Every year, we welcome people to join us on Instow beach to remember someone they have lost.
