Light Up a Life at Christmas

Light Up A Life at Christmas

A candle for someone you miss

Every year, as Christmas approaches, it is natural to think of those who are no longer with us. Those we wish we could share the festive period with.

Light Up a Life is a chance to celebrate the lives of those we miss at this time of year, by making a donation in their honour and lighting a candle to remember the light they brought into our lives.

A series of Light Up a Life services are held all over North Devon throughout December. These services give people the opportunity to celebrate someone's life and to come together and feel that they are not alone in missing someone during the festive period. Christmas can be a difficult time for those left behind and these services have proved extremely helpful to people, with many commenting on the feelings of support and comfort.
Whether or not they choose to also attend a service, most people make a donation to the annual Light Up a Life appeal via phone, by post or online. We will send you a special star that you can hang on your Christmas tree, carrying the names of those you miss. We will also include their names in our special Light Up a Life Book of Remembrance, which is available to view at North Devon Hospice and at all the services.

Your support helps us to care for those who need our support at Christmas time. Those who are facing the festive period while battling with the impact of a life-limiting illness. Your donations in memory of your loved ones means our nurses and doctors can carry on caring around the clock, right through the Christmas period. They can help patients and families make this a memorable time, in as much comfort as possible.
